Caine (Chair), Hastmann, Rhoades, M. Short, S. Short, Steen and Whitehead

The Department of Kinesiology and Public Health Education (KPHE) believes that individuals and society benefit from physical activity. The mission of the Department is to promote enhanced quality of life through participation in physical activity, exercise, and sport for the people of North Dakota and beyond. Specifically, this mission is accomplished through:

  1. the provision of quality teacher education and other professional preparation programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels (see Kinesiology, Master’s Program);
  2. creative and scholarly activity which leads to discovery and dissemination of professional and disciplinary knowledge; and
  3. contribution of professional expertise and talents as a service to the community, university and profession.

Graduates have the opportunity to pursue careers in physical education teaching, public health education, fitness and wellness education, leadership and management, athletic coaching, or to continue their education in graduate or professional studies.

Basic Instruction Program Courses (BIP). The Department of Kinesiology and Public Health Education also provides beginner, intermediate and advanced instruction for all students of the University in a wide variety of activities, such as aquatics, individual sports and activities (including combative sports, dance, fitness and conditioning, gymnastics, outdoor pursuits, racquet sports, strength training, and target sports) and team sports. Credits obtained from participation in these activity courses may count toward the credits required for graduation. These credits may be earned by enrolling in the various activities offered under the KIN 100-118 (beginner), 120-138 (intermediate), and 140-158 (advanced) course numbers. Specific course offerings are listed in the current schedule of courses. Students are generally required to bring their own equipment, although in some cases, equipment is provided by the department. Each BIP course has a $60 fee to help pay for the cost of equipment, instruction and administrative costs. There may also be fees assessed for some activities that require facility rental.

Undergraduate programs offered by the Department of Kinesiology and Public Health Education in the College of Education and Human Development are:

A. Major in Kinesiology: consists of a common core of courses with one option: teacher education (Option A), which leads to a certification to teach physical education in grades K-12; related area (Option B), which allows a student to study kinesiology and a related subdiscipline; kinesiology applications area (Option C) for those students who wish to find employment in wellness/fitness fields or pursue graduate or professional studies; and allied health (Option D) for those students wishing to pursue pre-allied health fields of professional study.

B. Major in Public Health Education: will expose students to the five core public health areas, including epidemiology, biostatistics, social and behavioral science, health policy and management, and environmental health. Graduates of the Public Health Education program will be prepared to work in a variety of settings, including local or state health departments, health services administration, corporate and worksite wellness programs, scientific research, general medical and surgical hospitals, parks and recreation, non-profit organizations and many others.

C. Minor in Athletic Coaching: offered to students who wish to prepare for athletic coaching.
