UMass Kinesiology Academic Advising

UMass Kinesiology Academic Advising Academic Advising for the Kinesiology Department at UMass Amherst Kinesiology is an interdisciplinary field focusing on the science of human movement.

Its four basic elements – biochemistry, biomechanics, motor control, and physiology – are integrated to allow kinesiologists to address a wide variety of questions. In recent years, the field of kinesiology has evolved toward less emphasis on sport and a much stronger focus on an understanding of human movement and the role of physical activity and exercise in health and disease. To those ends, kinesiologists use tools from molecular biology, neuroscience, engineering, medicine, and computer science to work on unique problems in a diverse array of settings that include laboratories, hospitals, health and wellness centers, and field environments. - See more at: http://www.umass.edu/sphhs/kinesiology#sthash.rNPQO7qo.dpuf

Mission: To generate new knowledge and educate society, within and beyond the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, as to the scientific principles that underlie the role of movement in attaining optimal human health and well-being. By our study of the structural and functional interactions between movement and health, we will: promote the understanding of benefits of physical activity; provide high quality education for undergraduate and graduate students; extend the boundaries of knowledge through innovative and integrative research; translate research results to practical applications beneficial to society. The Department of Kinesiology is committed to promoting diversity. - See more at: http://www.umass.edu/sphhs/kinesiology/about-us/mission#sthash.cTV7DTkc.dpuf

RSVP for Professional Development Workshop

Hi everyone! The UMass Kinesiology Club is hosting a professional development workshop with Professor Eliza Frechette this Thursday 2/8 at 5:30pm (location TBA). The workshop will consist of work on resumes and cover letters, mock interviews, and determining personal strengths and weaknesses when asked in interviews. We have decided to open the workshop up to the entire Kinesiology department, but for a small fee. If you are already a Kinesiology Club member, it is free. If you are not a club member but still want to attend, it is $2. And, if you are not a club member but want to attend AND join the club, it is our regular $5 semester fee (this will allow you to come to any events we hold this semester for free). Due to the popularity of this workshop, we ask that you RSVP below because we will most likely cap it at a certain number. Oh, and there will be food!!!!

Research Next UMass Amherst

Interested in getting involved in research? Taking a class with a professor who does research is a great way to bridge the gap. Consider taking Dr. Alhassan's Kin 346 Clinical & Public Health Implications of Obesity course in Spring 2018. It also counts as a kin elective!

Improving children's health is the focus of Sofiya Alhassan's research in the department of kinesiology. It's this impact that she believes draws students to her field, including many female undergraduates. To these students she tells an important message: get involved early and don't be afraid of making mistakes.
