The School of Kinesiology, located in the College of Education and Human Development, offers three undergraduate majors: Kinesiology, Recreation Administration, and Sport Management. Nearly 700 undergraduate majors anticipate professions requiring effective communication to academic, professional, and lay audiences. The department, its course offerings, and students’ career pursuits are interdisciplinary and involve collaborative partnerships with medicine, neuroscience, epidemiology, business, education, and social sciences.
The School of Kinesiology was an early adopter of the WEC program and has participated in several cycles of implementing and evaluating undergraduate writing in multiple courses. The diverse academic programs and research activities within the School of Kinesiology require diverse information representation and writing skills. Corresponding goals and the next phase of activities are currently being developed. Traditional writing activities and writing intensive courses are supported. New resources, for example, writing tips for graduate instructors, are being identified and implemented.
