The University of Michigan School of Kinesiology, commonly referred to as just "Kinesiology" or "Kines," focuses on the scientific study of human movement and how physical activity and sport affect our quality of life, community, and society at large. The school offers three undergraduate degrees in Applied Exercise Science, Movement Science, and Sport Management; three master's degrees in Athletic Training, Movement Science, and Sport Management; and two doctoral degrees in Movement Science and Sport Management. It also offers an Intraoperative Neuromonitoring concentration option for Movement Science undergraduates. In 2020, the PhD program was ranked #1 by the National Academy of Kinesiology.
The School of Kinesiology houses 24 research centers and laboratories that focus on injury prevention and rehabilitation; movement for health and well-being; childhood physical activity and development; community impact; and the business of sport. School faculty also lead several university-wide initiatives, including the Exercise & Sport Science Initiative (ESSI) and the Michigan Concussion Center.
In December 2008, Kinesiology officially became a school, previously being a division since its creation in 1984. In January 2021, the school moved into its newly renovated building, located at 830 N. University in Ann Arbor, MI
