Another field that you can consider with a Kinesiology degree is one in Medical devices. There are plenty of jobs within the realm of Medical devices that do not require a degree in biomedical engineering. Kinesiology does a really good job of teaching you about the body and how it works it can truly take you to any job you find interesting. The biggest thing I think your degree does is gets you in the door, but what you decide to do after that is entirely up to the path you want to go down! Make connections and do as much job shadowing as you can.
