More than teaching teachers

UNT's Department of Kinesiology, Health Promotion and Recreation offers you programs that focus on mental and physical health, and sport recreation administration. You can study the biological and behavioral components of movement, exercise and sport as a Kinesiology major or the impact of health programs on local and global populations as a Public Health or Health Promotion major. If you want to design, implement, lead and evaluate recreation programs and sporting events, you can find your place as a Recreation, Event and Sport Management major.

On top of changing trends

With 800,000 English language learners in Texas schools, we face a growing need for bilingual educators. Our bilingual and ESL programs prepare you to meet these needs. Our elementary and middle school programs also prepare you to teach STEM subjects to early learners.
