The undergraduate major in Kinesiology at Montana State University is a general pre-health professional curriculum that prepares students for health-related graduate programs (e.g., physical therapy, occupational therapy, medical school, etc.), exercise science graduate programs (e.g., exercise physiology, health promotion, biomechanics), as well as entry-level occupations within the health and wellness industry. Kinesiology majors can choose to focus their course work within one of the following curriculum options: exercise science or health and fitness. Students within the exercise science option intend to pursue a health-related graduate degree to meet their career aspirations, whereas students within the health and fitness option will pursue careers within the health and wellness industry that do not require a graduate degree.
