The Kinesiology program at Michigan Technological University provides an excellent education paired with advanced research opportunities in health and human movement, which add up to a competitive edge for graduates.


Do your interests lie in cardiac rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, fitness training and management, sports administration, or research/teaching in health and kinesiology? If you would like to pursue a career in any of these fields, allow us to prepare you for a high-impact profession.
