    General Information:
    The Department of Kinesiology is one of six departments in the College
    of Health and Human Development. The department offers a comprehensive
    educational experience in the study of human movement at the
    undergraduate and graduate levels. The undergraduate program emphasizes
    a broad core curriculum as the basis for further study in upper division
    options of athletic training, dance, exercise science and physical
    education. Areas of specialization in the graduate program include
    adapted physical education, biomechanics, exercise physiology, motor
    behavior and pedagogy. There are currently more than 500 undergraduates
    and 80 graduate students pursuing majors within the department.

    The Department of Kinesiology is located in the newest and most
    comprehensive facility in the CSU system. The 114,000 square-foot
    state-of-the-art facility houses laboratories for biomechanics, exercise
    physiology, motor behavior, motor development, movement education,
    adapted physical education, sports medicine and computer applications.
    In biomechanics, the lab includes 3D video analysis, force platform, and
    telemetered electromyography capabilities that afford faculty the
    opportunity to pursue interests in many areas of biomechanics,
    including, but not limited to, sport performance, computer modeling, and
    clinical evaluation.

    California State University, Northridge, one of the largest of the 23
    campuses of the California State University system, is located
    twenty-five miles northwest of central Los Angeles in the San Fernando
    Valley, a suburb with a multi-ethnic population of over one million
