Department of Kinesiology

Education in Motion

Whether you see yourself in a hospital setting helping clients as a physical therapist or occupational therapist, on the sidelines as a coach or a trainer, in the classroom as a physical education teacher, in business as a sports manager, as a sports journalist or radio announcer, or you simply have a desire to share your faith through the sport you love, your active learning and leading style is a perfect fit here. In the simplest terms, kinesiology is the study of human movement, and at LETU, we study movement from the simple to the extreme!

Our students dig deep into the fields they love with hands-on internship experience and quality training to help them make a major impact in a vast variety of education and health-related fields — two of the top areas for a stable, in-demand career.
