Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Kinesiology is to prepare professionals at both the undergraduate and graduate levels through excellence in teaching, research, and service so that they may encourage enhanced performance and quality of life of all citizens of the Piedmont Triad and beyond through active lifestyles and lifetime physical activity.


Transfer Students

Students who enter the UNCG Kinesiology major as transfers in the junior year should expect to take at least an extra semester of work unless they enter with a strong background in science (BIO 111, BIO 271, BIO 277) and physical education activities. For those students seeking Teacher Licensure who are also required to complete a second academic concentration, the time commitment may be further extended.
