The Department of Kinesiology offers four undergraduate concentrations: Physical Education and Coaching (PECO), Health Fitness Studies (HFS), Clinical Exercise Physiology (CLEP), and Sport Studies (SS).

Community college transfer hours not to exceed 62 semester hours may be applied to the Kinesiology degree program.

All concentrations require the specified course requirements cited within the General Education and major core listings below. Specified area content courses vary among the four concentrations and are listed following the core section. Pre-Occupational Therapy, Pre-Physical Therapy, Pre-Medical, and Pre-Physician Assistant curricula have different core and program requirements. Those students desiring to enter a graduate health care field should major in CLEP in their undergraduate curriculum.

Physical Education and Coaching Concentration (PECO)

Major Advisors: J.J. Chen, Debby Funderburk, Elizabeth Palmer, Brad Vickers, and Glen Young

The physical education and coaching concentration requires 124 semester hours of prescribed courses to complete the Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. The curriculum is designed to meet the need of students interested in becoming physical education teachers in public and private schools. The teaching block of courses must be included in the on-campus requirement of 32 semester hours of junior and senior courses. Students who complete the program will be eligible for teacher licensure by the Mississippi Department of Education.

Health Fitness Studies Concentration (HFS)

Major Advisors: Erin Grant-Butler, Matthew McAllister, and Elizabeth Palmer

The health fitness studies concentration provides a basic understanding of the science behind physical fitness and the knowledge to implement effective health fitness programs. This concentration also provides students a basic preparation in one of three tracks students may choose: Business, Health, or Aging. Students are prepared to work in a variety of settings and jobs: fitness instructors, strength and conditioning specialists, directors of wellness and fitness programs associated with hospitals or geriatric centers, or in employee assistance in the corporate setting.

Clinical Exercise Physiology Concentration (CLEP)

Major Advisors: Stamatis Agiovlasitis, Harish Chander, Erin Grant-Butler, Laura Hilton, Megan Holmes, Lee Ann Joe, Adam Knight, John Lamberth, Matthew McAllister, Elizabeth Palmer, Zhujun Pan, JohnEric Smith, Ben Wax, and Holly Wiley

The clinical exercise physiology concentration is designed as a professional preparation program of study that enables students to work in clinical settings as exercise physiologists in cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation, or other clinical rehabilitation settings, such as those for individuals with diabetes, orthopedic limitations, arthritis, cancer, osteoporosis, renal failure, obesity, and in programs dealing with issues of aging. The clinical exercise physiology concentration also provides students with the necessary background to pursue graduate health professions, such as physical or occupational therapy, physician assistant studies, medicine, or other graduate level educational programs.

Sport Studies Concentration (SS)

Major Advisors: Younghan Lee, Soyoun Lim, Matthew Rye, Matthew Zimmerman, and Greggory Twietmeyer

The Sport Studies concentration provides students with knowledge and skills necessary for careers in the sport industry. A concentration in Sport Studies helps prepare students to work in such fields as sport marketing & promotions, sporting event and/or facility management & operations, sport communication & media relations, and other administrative areas at the professional, collegiate, and recreational levels of the sport business industry. The program seeks to combine classroom education with hands-on experience, as all students will complete an internship in the sport industry prior to graduation. Students choosing a concentration in Sport Studies choose either the Business or Communication cognate field.
