Kinesiology

High-tech facilities. Hands-on experience. Heart-and-soul commitment.

These are just a few of the reasons to study exercise science or sport management at Taylor.

At the end of four years, you will be equipped to start your career in sport management, athletic or personal training—or to continue your education in graduate school to become a doctor, nurse, or physical or occupational therapist.

With opportunities to physically train clients, conduct original research, travel to and study internationally in places like Belize and Ecuador, Taylor University's kinesiology programs will prepare you to live out your faith wherever God is leading you.
