Congratulations for choosing to pursue a career in Kinesiology here at The University of Texas and Texas Southmost College. It promises to be a fulfilling and exciting one! As you know, Kinesiology plays an integral part in the total educational process for the children and young people in our schools today. One of the most important responsibilities we face in our profession is to instill in each child, and adults, too, the importance of living a healthy lifestyle, which includes the participation in lifetime sports and fitness activities. This can be accomplished by providing sound programs in Kinesiology based on quality instruction, best teaching practices, and the application of current research. To that end, the Department of Health and Human Performance at UTB/TSC strives to provide you with the training and educational background needed to become a highly skilled and knowledgeable educator and/or exercise science specialist.
