The Department of Kinesiology is comprised of 34 full-time faculty members. There are approximately 610 students in the Department's four Bachelor of Science degree programs: exercise physiology, health fitness specialist, physical education, and sport studies. The Department's graduate program, with an enrollment of 100 students, offers an MS in Kinesiology with seven concentrations: adapted physical education, biomechanics, exercise physiology, physical activity promotion, physical education pedagogy, sport and exercise psychology, and sport management and an interdisciplinary PhD in bioenergetics and exercise science with the Departments of Physiology and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. The Department also offers a MAEd in physical education in conjunction with the College of Education.

Kinesiology is one of the university's most productive departments in terms of teaching excellence, research that is often externally funded and/or includes components that serve the Eastern North Carolina region, and service the profession, university and community.

While many of our faculty members are affiliated with one or more labs/centers/institutes, such an affiliation is not necessary for some to be successful at East Carolina University. Reviewing the several labs housed within our department may be a good starting point for determining possible affiliations (follow the link to view all lab webpages or use links below to navigate directly to the lab you are looking for).

Activity Promotion Laboratory, Biomechanics Laboratory, Developmental Motor Laboratory, Human Performance Laboratory, Teacher Behavior Analysis Laboratory, Visual Motor Laboratory

Considerable opportunities for collaborative efforts exist throughout the institution. A selected few are included below, but we encourage you to explore ECU generally, as disease prevention, enhancing quality of life through promoting healthy lifestyles and physical activity specifically are prevalent themes in many units.
