The Department of Kinesiology and Health Sciences offers programs that prepare students to pursue careers that utilize exercise interventions for both healthy and diseased populations and/or careers designed for students who wish to enter a health care-related field (that does not require licensure, certification or registry status). The department offers one undergraduate degree program; the Bachelor of Science with either the exercise science concentration or the health science concentration.

Along with the undergraduate program, the department also offers a Master of Science in Health and Movement Sciences and Doctor of Philosophy in Rehabilitation and Movement Science.

The M.S. in Health and Movement Sciences program provides advanced course work for students interested in the application of health and movement science principles to exercise science, teaching and sports medicine. This program has a central focus on the sciences and is flexible enough so that students, with the assistance of an adviser, can design a program that truly meets their professional goals.

The Doctor of Philosophy in Rehabilitation and Movement Science program is interdisciplinary in nature and includes faculty from the departments of Kinesiology and Health Sciences, Physical Therapy, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Students choose a concentration in either exercise physiology or neuromusculoskeletal dynamics.

The department also offers a post-baccalaureate undergraduate Certificate in Health Sciences that is designed for students who hold a baccalaureate degree in a non-science area and wish to pursue their undergraduate pre-health sciences requirements at VCU.
