UNK’s Kinesiology and Sport Sciences Department offers some of the most popular and dynamic programs in the region. The department’s focus is on
preparing students for a variety of fields that involve pedagogy in health and exercise, recreation and sport sciences - with graduate opportunities in the health and medical professions. Beginning their freshman year, students at UNK have the opportunity to complete interactive experiences to practice teaching
in a variety of health education settings because of the close partnerships with surrounding school districts. UNK believes in the value of hands-on learning and helps to guide students in these field experiences throughout their college career to develop quality educators who make a difference in the lives of students.
