Kinesiology brings together people who study human physical activity from a variety of perspectives and at many levels of analysis. From molecules, genes, neurons, muscles of an individual performer, to sport in society, and the study of groups that promote and educate others about physical activity, the University of Maryland's Department of Kinesiology is unique in its depth and breadth.
