Mission

We promote health and well-being by creating and disseminating knowledge about physical activity and active living. Through discovery, learning and engagement we improve the lives of citizens of Iowa, the United States and the world.

Goals

The department has identified the following goals to support this mission:

1. We seek to improve the lives of citizens of Iowa, the United States, and the world by the creation and dissemination of knowledge about physical activity and its relationship to health and well-being.

2. We prepare scholars and professionals in the study of physical activity at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

3. We educate the public and the University community in the scientific aspects of physical activity especially exercise, sport, and the role of movement throughout the lifespan.

Overview of Programs

The Department Kinesiology provides opportunities for matriculation leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy. At both the undergraduate and graduate level, there are opportunities for study in the department's two specializations: the behavioral and biological bases of physical activity.

Undergraduate Study

Dance.Coursework in dance provides opportunities for students to develop an understanding and appreciation of dance as part of a liberal education. Those interested in teaching dance and Physical Education in the public schools may major in health and human performance (teacher licensure option) and minor in dance.

An interdisciplinary Performing Arts major with a dance emphasis is available through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. For further information see Index, Theatre and Performing Arts.

The department offers a minor in dance that may be earned by completing the following: Dance 220, 222, 270, 320, 360, 384, 385 or 386, and three additional credits selected from dance courses numbered 200 or above. Participation in Orchesis I or II is recommended.

Kinesiology.The undergraduate curriculum in Kinesiology is comprised of four components: general education, the Basic Core, the Advanced Core, and the option component. The intent of the general education component is to promote intellectual and personal growth and to prepare students for success in the basic, advanced and option components. The Basic Core enables students to understand, define and explore their own health and physical activity through the cognitive, affective and psychomotor domains. The Advanced Core extends this learning to include disciplinary concepts and tools of inquiry that comprise scientific literacy associated with health and physical activity. Finally, coursework within each specialization option builds upon this personal and scholarly learning by enabling students to master content and skills specific to career applications. The specialization Options comprise a focused area of study within Kinesiology. Options available are 1) Athletic Training, 2) Community and Public Health, 3) Exercise Science, 4) General Studies, and 5) Health/Fitness Management and 6) Physical Education/Licensure. Enrollment in the Athletic Training and Physical Education Licensure options is limited because of accreditation requirements and the provision of more individualized field experiences.

Academic options within the undergraduate program. Students in the CAATE accredited Athletic Training option are prepared for the National Athletic Training Association Board of Certification examination or for graduate work in athletic training. Graduates of this option will effectively use their expertise to plan Strategies aimed at the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries.

Academic options within the undergraduate program. Students in the CAAHEP accredited Athletic Training option are prepared for the National Athletic Training Association Board of Certification examination or for graduate work in athletic training. Graduates of this option will effectively use their expertise to plan Strategies aimed at the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries.

Students in the Community and Public Health option are prepared for professional employment at local, state or national health agencies, medical centers, and other public organizations that seek to promote health in the population. The curriculum prepares students to take the Certified Health Education Specialist certification examination upon graduation.

Students in the Exercise Science option utilize an interdisciplinary approach to the study of human movement. In so doing, they become prepared for graduate study in Kinesiology or advanced study leading to careers in medicine, physical therapy, or other allied health programs.

Students in the General Studies option combine kinesiology with a concentration in another area of study to support an individualized program, such as community sport and recreation, dance, and other sport, exercise, or health related fields. Programs of study must be approved by the undergraduate program coordinator.

Students in the Health/Fitness Management option are prepared for professional roles as health and fitness leaders or program managers. Employment opportunities include work in corporate fitness programs, health clubs, cardiac rehabilitation programs or personal training. Graduates are able to plan, implement and supervise exercise programs which will improve fitness and health. Graduates also have a basic understanding of economic and management issues related to business applications in the health and fitness field.

Students in the Physical Education Licensure option are prepared to teach Physical Education in grades K-12 and to meet the State of Iowa learning outcomes for teachers. Graduates can plan developmentally appropriate physical education, and individualize instruction and assessment for diverse audiences.

Learning outcomes for the undergraduate degree. Despite the diversity in specialization Options, the Learning Outcomes comprise a common framework for each student as they matriculate through Iowa State University.

The learning outcomes emphasized in academic coursework in the Department of Kinesiology are:

Content knowledge.The student has a broad conceptual view of physical activity and health, recognizes its scientific underpinnings (e.g. history, content, disciplinary concepts, and tools of inquiry) and appreciates the interdisciplinary nature of the study of physical activity and health. Literacy will be gained from the personal, scholarly and professional perspectives.

Discovery and critical thinking.The student can use accepted techniques of discovery and apply critical thinking within and outside of the discipline area. The student will be able to solve problems independently and evaluate opinions and outcomes at the personal scholarly and professional level.

Communication.The student uses knowledge of effective verbal, nonverbal and media communication techniques to foster inquiry, collaboration, and engagement in physical activity and health related settings.

Numeracy.The student understands and uses qualitative and quantitative analysis through formal and informal assessment strategies.

Technology.The student understands and uses a variety of technological applications to improve personal understanding and to enhance scholarly pursuits and professional practice in their chosen area of study.

Learning in the following domains occurs both in and outside the Iowa State University experience. The department will foster development in these domains through its courses and other activities.

Citizenship.The student uses value and ethics based decision making to demonstrate personal, professional and world citizenship through fostering relationships, embracing leadership, accepting social responsibility, seeking and completing opportunities to improve the quality of life for others.

Lifelong learning.The student is a reflective professional who actively seeks to further self-knowledge and seeks opportunities to grow professionally.

Diversity.The student understands how individuals differ in their approaches to initiating and maintaining a physically active, healthy lifestyle, and creates appropriate environments for diverse participants.

The department offers a minor in athletic coaching. The minor may be earned by completing the following: Kin 220, 258, 315, 355, 358, 365; Biol 155; and Psych 230.

The department offers a minor in sport and culture. The minor may be earned by completing the following: Kin 360 and 365; and completing 9 credits from the following: Kin 242, 315, 331, 442, and 445.

Endorsement to Coach Interscholastic Athletics. The State Department of Education has provided for the endorsement of licensed teachers for the coaching of athletic teams in schools. The endorsement does not lead to licensure to teach physical education. For requirements of the program, leading to the coaching endorsement, see Teacher Education, Requirements for Areas of Specialization.

Basic Activity Instruction Program. The department offers a wide selection of beginning, intermediate, and advanced courses in the areas of aquatics, dance, and sports. These courses are designed to serve general education purposes for all students.

B.S./M.S. degree in Diet and Exercise. A combined Bachelor of Science and Master of Science (B.S./M.S.) degree in diet and exercise is available. The program is jointly administered by the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition (FS HN), within the Colleges of Agriculture and Human Sciences, and the Department of Kinesiology, within the College of Human Sciences. Students interested in this program must enroll as freshmen in the pre-diet and exercise program In the fall of the junior year students will apply for admission to the B.S./M.S. program. Students not accepted into the program will continue toward completion of a B.S. degree in dietetics or kinesiology. Coursework has been designed to facilitate a 4-year graduation date for those students not accepted into the program and electing to complete a single undergraduate degree. Students accepted into the program will progress toward completion of B.S./M.S. degrees in diet and exercise.

Graduate Study

The Department of Kinesiology graduate seeks to integrate discovery and learning by preparing graduate students to understand and create basic and applied knowledge in the study of physical activity, exercise and sport. For all graduate degrees the department offers specializations in behavioral basis of physical activity and biological basis of physical activity. The normal prerequisite to major graduate work is the satisfactory completion of a curriculum essentially equivalent to that required of undergraduate students in kinesiology at this university. However, it is possible for students to qualify for graduate study if undergraduate preparation has been in a related area.

Students in the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees are required to complete original research and write a thesis or dissertation. There is a nonthesis degree option for M.S. students requiring more coursework and an internship experience or other creative component. Specific information about the requirements for these degree options is available from the department office or from the department web site ( www.kin.hs.iastate.edu/graduate ).

The department participates in the interdepartmental minor in gerontology (see Index).
