    Just make sure your in it for the long run. A 4 year kinesiology degree won't do much, but it is usually a good springboard into various Master's degree programs

    I'm a kin major and nutrition minor. It requires a lot of science and psycology, but not really much in the way of math (which is a good thing )

    It's great if you want to go into training, physical therapy, or even medical school.

    Absolutely. As a matter of fact, at UIC, Kinesiology is the major that you need in order to get into the Nutrition program. Also, it's classified as a "health science" so it's a great way to get into research.

    im going to UPitt in the fall and i am going to major in Athletic Training, then go onto physical therapy.

    Athletic training major is mainly the same classes as kinesiology.
    it is a good deal of science- bio, chem and physics, all I and II. besides that the rest of the classes are not too bad :]

    the non-core part of the program varies big time from school to school. i've heard of some programs requiring a ton of science and some barely any at all...at Sam Houston i only need 2 semesters of chem, contemporary bio, and anatomy, and that covers the non-core sciences. getting into the core classes...pretty much what you'd expect...physiology of exercise, biomechanics, assessment type stuff.

    i'm just about 2 years into the program here and i'm liking it. i've been working as a personal trainer for 2 years now and while at first i wanted nothing to do with it as a career...i've switched my minor to business and will probably go into performance coaching rather than team S&C like i had originally planned.

    x2 Im a kin major as well.

    I thought i wanted to do physical therapy but I've recently decided to switch to nursing. I'm not as interested in doing PT work as I had originally thought.

    The major is not incredibly difficult and is quite interesting, especially if you like training and sports.

    I'm not sure the money is the greatest but if you love your job, it doesn't matter.

    The best thing you can do is talk to people that HAVE their Kinesiology major and see how they like their job and if it was worth it.

    No... A PhD will lead to a career in sports exercise/nutrition research.. Obviously a backbone in kines or physiology will help you attain that though.

    As far as the major itself.. it really depends where you go for it. I'm an Exercise Physiology major and it's one of the toughest majors you can choose at my school. Difficulty ranks possibly even higher than a bio or chem major. However, at some colleges kinesiology or exercise science is a cupcake major and some people tend to view it as such because of those schools. At these schools pretty much all your classes will be movement related and none will have a significant background in science.

    Do it if your interested in it. However, though there will continue to be openings in the field of health and fitness as our country starts to realize the importance of exercise, it will be VERY difficult to find a job with only your bachelors in kinesiology. Good luck with whatever you choose.
