Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Kinesiology and Health. Our dedicated faculty, innovative research laboratories, and enriching academic programs revolve around one goal: moving lives forward. Kinesiology is the study of movement, the lifeblood of society. KH students prepare for careers in settings as diverse as the elementary school classroom, the cardiac rehaMark Geilbilitation unit at a hospital, or the front office of a professional sports franchise.

Blaise Pascal said, “The least movement is of importance to all nature. The entire ocean is affected by a pebble.” I invite you to become a part of the thriving KH movement. Explore our programs in Exercise Science, Sports Administration, and Health and Physical Education. Meet our faculty members; they’re leaders in their field, constantly engaged in the discovery of knowledge that has direct impact on human lives. Better yet, come visit us in our strategically vital downtown Atlanta campus.
We look forward to meeting soon.

Dr. Mark Geil, Department Chair
