Discover the science behind sport – explore the human body and the relationship between exercise and health through the study of Human Kinetics.

Why study human kinetics at CapU?

Studying human kinetics at CapU will give you foundational knowledge and encourage real-life application of potential career-related skills. You'll explore anatomy and physiology, exercise physiology, nutrition, biomechanics and more, while practicing proven methods in sport psychology, leadership, strength and conditioning and health promotion.  

Through our programs you'll learn the skills to channel a general excitement toward physical activity into a career direction where you can motivate others to reach their health goals. Hands-on learning extends beyond our skill-building labs and into community engagement opportunities where you'll work with children, adults, older adults, athletes, coaches and more.  

Graduates of our human kinetics programs leave CapU with the ability to satisfy the growing demand for professionals who can positively impact the health of those around them.
