Kinesiology Offered at WJU Rocklin Campus





ROCKLIN, CA., - William Jessup University will offer a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology (BSK) slated to begin fall 2014. The BSK program will provide a sound liberal arts background and allow students the opportunity to study the core academic areas, while offering many sub-disciplines related with the allied health professions, athletic team concepts and applications, and academic teaching methodology.

"The core areas of study will include exercise science, sports management, and health and wellness," said Dr. Nathan Herzog, associate provost at Jessup.

"These concentrations will expose our students to a broader perspective of the field and develop highly employable graduates applicable to a variety of vocational endeavors." 

The department will offer courses, labs and real-world experiences specific to careers in exercise physiology, biomechanics, sport and exercise psychology, public school teaching, athletic training, coaching, corporate fitness and wellness, and more.

The announcement comes just days after the university announced a new baseball program directed by former Major League Baseball New York Mets and Chicago White Sox manager, Jerry Manuel.

"We recognized that majoring in Kinesiology is highly desirable for many of our athletes," said Mitch Pleis, director of athletics at the growing university. "Clearly, this will work well for many of the new recruits we expect to join our baseball program for the 2014-15 academic year."

The new major also provides significant opportunities for expansion of influences into the healthcare field, sports industry and associated applications with partnerships from local, regional and global academia, sport industry internships, athletic coach mentoring, research opportunities, health promotional conferences, and related professional institutions, companies, and corporate team affiliations.
