Kinesiology studies physical activity and human movement, and explores their impact on health, society, and quality of life. Students examine movement from the neuromechanical, physiological, psychological, and sociological perspectives. The Pre-Health Professions Concentration prepares students for admission into Graduate Programs in a multitude of the Health Professions such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, medicine, dentistry, physician assistant practice, and optometry. The Department of Kinesiology's Core is a perfect complement to the standard prerequisite courses and expanded elective courses available through this concentration. This combination of coursework and practical experience will position students well for continued study at the graduate level. While the Pre-Health Professions concentration includes the standard prerequisite courses and the option for elective courses for admission into graduate programs for a multitude of health professions, students are advised to check the prerequisites for their intended graduate programs and work these into their programs where elective coursework is afforded. In addition to the Pre-Health Professions concentration, the Department of Kinesiology has a memorandum of understanding with Temple University's Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program providing academically gifted students the opportunity to enter into a 3 + 3 program. Students who are accepted into Temple's DPT program at the conclusion of their junior year are allowed to count the first year of their DPT program as the fourth year of their undergraduate studies, thus eliminating one year of academic work. Students can only start the 3 + 3 program the first semester of their freshmen year.
