The School of Physical Education was formed in 1960. The name was changed in 1975 to the Faculty of Physical Education. In 1996, the faculty was renamed the Faculty of Kinesiology.
Kinesiology is a multidisciplinary science encompassing anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, psychomotor behaviour, and social and cultural factors.
