Activity Classes

The Kinesiology Department consistently offers a wide variety of activity classes (also called physical education classes) to meet the needs of our diverse student population. Researchers have determined that being physically active is important for physical and emotional health while stimulating intellectual capabilities. Research suggests that engaging in regular physical activity is essential for improving cardiorespiratory fitness, development of strong bones and muscles, and weight control. There is evidence that these types of classes also reduce symptoms of anxiety and depressions while reducing the risk of various health conditions including heart disease.


The activity classes benefit students that want to learn specific skills, strategies, and tactics associated with a specific sport. The instructors also create a positive environment where students experience a sense of community and support with peers as they learn.


To meet these needs each class has been leveled so you are eligible to enroll in more than one semester of the same class. Classes are divided into sections to help students locate the type of class they may be interested in. Classes in aquatics, team sports, individual and duel sports, eastern movement, and exercise and fitness are available.
