Aijaz’s Answer

Kinesiology is the study of body movement, and it has applications in physical education and athletic training. Graduates of kinesiology programs may work as athletic trainers in health clubs or schools, while others work as physical education teachers at K-12 schools and summer camps. Alternatively, kinesiology graduates may choose to work in sports administration in a school or business setting. Sports administrators take on a more managerial role within training and physical education. Those who choose sports administration often work at schools as athletic directors or in the private industry as sports marketers for sales or sponsorship.
