Since our founding in 1863, we've been educating students on the importance of health, physical activity, and leisure.
We envision an enhanced quality of life for all through active and healthy lifestyles. Our mission is to provide nationally acclaimed academic programs that foster physically active and healthy lifestyles. We do this through exemplary teaching, scholarship, and service.
We offer a variety of bachelor and master's degrees, as well as a minor in Recreation in Park Administration.
On top of a quality education, students in the KNR program get valuable, real-world experience. With numerous internship opportunities for undergraduates and paid assistantships for graduate students, you'll get plenty of hands-on experience in your chosen field.
The School of KNR is housed in McCormick Hall, a 170,000 square foot complex connected to the Student Fitness Center. Our labs and classrooms are equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology, giving you unique experiences both inside and outside of the classroom.
