Department of Kinesiology & Physical Education

Prof. Nathan S. Wright, Chairperson

In the Department of Kinesiology & Physical Education at The Master’s University, students have the opportunity to

study important principles they can use for a successful career and effective ministry in physical education, sports, and

pre-physical therapy. These concentrations of study will mold a person’s knowledge in activity skills, educational

methods, scientific factors in body movement analysis, sports injury care, and allied health careers.

The Department of Kinesiology & Physical Education is designed to prepare Christian leadership in such areas as

teaching/coaching, exercise and sport science, and pre-physical therapy. Graduating students will participate in the

instructional areas of elementary and secondary schools (both public and private) and areas of allied health. To

implement these objectives, the department provides movement theory, activity, and science basis course work.
