In the SFSU Department of Kinesiology we study the various factors that influence and define human movement. Students experience the cross-disciplinary foundations of the field of Kinesiology while gaining both theoretical and practical knowledge related to the biological, physical, socio-cultural, philosophical, and psychological factors underlying all forms of physical activity. The various forms of physical activity are studied in the context of daily living, rehabilitation, fitness and health pursuits, competitive and artistic domains.
