Kinesiology and Exercise Science at CCU

The book of Genesis teaches that human beings are created in the image of God, the imago Dei. This truth is the basis for the kinesiology and exercise science program at CCU. Because human beings are created beings that exist as both body and soul, we are called to steward that creation. The primary focus of the kinesiology and exercise science program is for each student to develop abilities and master knowledge and skills necessary to provide leadership in the health and fitness field. Graduates will have a solid, broad-based background in the field and will have the knowledge to apply instruments and techniques in a practical setting, while doing so as ethical leaders committed to Christian service.

About the School of Science and Engineering

In the School of Science and Engineering at Colorado Christian University, character forms the bedrock of God-honoring and kingdom-building science. We aim to help our students explore the world that God created, use cutting-edge technology, and discover how faith interacts with questions that arise out of studying science. We focus on teaching our students how to articulate a Christian perspective on issues such as bioethics, ecology, and human life.

Science and engineering programs are taught within the world of ideas, synthesizing the liberal arts, advanced theories, and applied technology. Our faculty intentionally seek out ways to hone a Christ-like character in our students, inspiring them to become moral and ethical, world-changing leaders. Purposefully small classes and laboratories invite students to learn with their hands as well as their minds. This instills a level of mastery necessary to become a leader in rapidly-advancing fields of science and engineering.
