The Kinesiology Program at ULM seeks to provide our students with skills to successfully pursue contemporary careers. With studies concentrated in exercise science, pre-physical therapy, and sport management, our faculty and facilities provide the best possible learning environment. Our CAAHEP certifications for both undergraduate and graduate programs speak to the quality of the education we offer. We welcome potential students to discover ULM.

Choosing Kinesiology
Our Kinesiology program prepare students for exciting careers in the sport, fitness, and health industries, which could include conducting scientific testing in an exercise physiology lab, preparing to enter physical therapy or athletic training graduate programs, working on the business side of sport-related organizations, and entering the fitness and recreation industry at all levels.

Requirements in the Kinesiology Program
With the high quality standards set by the Kinesiology Program, students must be able to meet eligibility requirements, excel in their studies and maintain a "C" or above average in the Kinesiology classes. Therefore, employers can recognize the merit and potential our graduates have to offer.

Program Goal 
The goal of the B.S. in Kinesiology-Exercise Science Concentration program is to educate and prepare students for entry-level positions in careers that include strength and conditioning, exercise, fitness, training, and rehabilitation services. In addition, ULM Kinesiology aims to prepare many undergraduates for further educations in various graduate and professional schools. 

Student Learning Outcomes  

SLO #1: Students will comprehend theories behind the physiological and metabolic responses to exercise and be able to apply and test these theories with various populations in a safe manner.

SLO #2: Students will conduct and interpret exercise testing results and create specific exercise programs for various populations according to age, functional capacity, pre-existing conditions, and desired outcomes.

SLO #3: Students will understand body composition protocols and apply these protocols to body composition assessment with minimal errors.

SLO #4: Students will apply myriad exercise science theories and concepts with clients in either clinical or professional settings.
