What Can I Do With a Kinesiology Degree?,Synthetic%20Work%2DLife%20Earnings%20by%20Field%20of%20Bachelor’s%20Degree%20and,Attainment%20is%20a%20Bachelor’s%20Degree&text=A%20bachelor’s%20degree%20holder%20can,his%20or%20her%20work%20life


  1. I like this video because it’s so true lol. I’m 27 and going through a career crisis because it doesn’t pay unless u get into a hospital or somewhere where u get secure income. My best advice though is get as many certifications as u can. Or at least two. It sucks because u could be a physical therapy assistant but not too many jobs out there…open ones anyway and for some of the certificates, u have to go back to school again! Before u can take the cert tests.! So if ur parent ever tells u that there generation had it so much harder than today’s time..uhhhh no. Your parents needed a sports med degrees and could do anything with it. Without certs. We have it so much harder. Lol sorry had to rant

  2. I plan on retiring in the military and using this degree afterwards so happiness is definitely more important than the money would be

  3. I worked in hospital settings as a fitness specialist and networked with others in different settings. I would say an exercise science degree highest would get you 40k in standard settings, any higher you need to run a successful fitness business which most cases you don’t need the degree just a Personal trainer, CSCS, NASM certifications. An outlier is general manager of edge fitness clubs, they pay insane for BS in EXS. My previous boss was one and made 90k a year but was so miserable from corporate environment he had to quit. Most cases you would have to do more schooling to apply to PT or OT because the undergrad curriculum doesn’t require many of the science classes you would need to apply to graduate schools.

  4. Hey Shane, is it smart to major in Biology to pursue physical therapy?

    PS: My school doesn’t have physical therapy as it’s own major so i think Biology is the only way to pursue it

  5. It’s used to get the prerequisites for PT and OT. If you are a 3.0 Exercise science person you wasted your money . If you are 3.6 or above you can go into a DPT program.

  6. Exercise science/Kinesiology bachelors degree is used by many as a stepping stone to becoming a Physical Therapist. Afterwards many go to Physical therapy school for their masters.

  7. Do you think engineering is the best degree to get, even if we eventually delve in the world of finance or any other jobs out there? Because I heard from many that Engineers could venture in basically any other field, even perform much better than those who major specifically on that field. What do you think?

  8. This degree easily transitions into Nursing and most of Pre-Med. I don’t think you realize how well this degree branches out into major careers…. especially when you finish it on a specific concentration like rehabilitation science.

  9. This video deserves more views. I was interested in sports science and this overall reassures my thoughts with it. Excellent work

  10. As far as which career domain exercise science falls under… I would say that an athletic trainer is similar to a physical therapist in the sense that you get to help your patients/clients work towards a goal as well as experience great satisfaction when they see amazing results. It definitely wouldn’t fall under physical sciences because that deals with the non-living. Also, since health science is the study of all aspects of health, disease, and healthcare which aims to develop knowledge, intervention, and technology to improve the treatment of patients. Based on this, I’d say no because healthcare providers primarily work on treating diseases and temporary life encounters/anguish. Biological sciences, in my opinion, is where exercise science falls under because you’re dealing with the living which are humans and you have to have a very good understanding of how the human body works internally in order to be a successful athletic trainer; gut health, how does it look like when calories vs. fat are burn, which exercises are the best to create muscles and/or to decrease in numbers, etc. If your weight is at risk of your health, you would go see a bariatrician, or not to that extreme degree, then maybe a dietician/nutritionist. So, this case it would fall into the hands of health care providers, however this has nothing to do obtaining an exercise science degree or specializing in it without a degree. Just because it deals with the overall health of a person doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a health science degree. Hope this helps Shane!

  11. Does exercise physiology count towards this because im going for that and in the end I end up with a exercise physiology exam to be a physiologist

  12. My Kinesiology degree cost about 40K and i couldn’t get a job..

    All it did get me into a nursing school where I spent $3,500 for my associates and $10,000 fir my bachelor’s which led me to a job where I make six figures.

  13. Yeah exercise science is definitely a stepping stone degree, most go on to PT/OT school or get a masters! I got my exercise science degree and am now getting my MPH in Epidemiology!

  14. I got my BS in exercise science. Really not worth it unless you plan on going to grad school to get a Masters in PT or OT. If you are doing it just to become a personal trainer, nutritionist, or anything like that, it’s not needed. There are certificates out there that are going to cost less and help you get the same job.

  15. Someone help me I am confused 😶 whether I should go for excercise and sport science degree or I have a better option

  16. If I want to be a performance specialist , can I achieve by others degrees ?? Or a kinesiology barchelor it’s enough

  17. I use to think my master’s in exercise science was a useless degree but after having someone point out that because my degree was a heavily research based program that involved a lot of statistical analysis, that it is a matter of capitalizing on that aspect of my degree. I figure by learning to program using Python, R and SQL and also become really familiar with using Tableau that I may be able to open more opportunities. Without these added skills, some people will tell me that employers see a master’s in exercise science as nothing more than a glorified personal training certificate. That is far from the truth.

  18. I am getting a Kinesiology degree which is similar to this degree. I am planning on moving on to PT school, some doctor position, or nursing

  19. I don’t know where u live, but here in Brasil it’s really important to have a degree to work as a personal trainer or a p.e educartional teacher. And for me it’s really strange how people on many countrys doesn’t considerer that exercise can hurt on a highest lvl if u don’t have the knowlegement or the care to study the human body to work with. I graduate this year and I’m surprise bc seems that only in my country this is taken seriously.

  20. You mentioned Personal Training a lot but I’m thinking of become an Athletic Trainer. Are these stats the same?

  21. My BS is in Exercise Science with a concentration in Rehabilitation Science, with a minor in Psychology. Finished it in 3 years flat and I’m finishing my 4th semester of RN school now in year 4 since going back. I’m debating on what graduate program to go into, but I’m most considering the PhD in Rehabilitation Science program at UCSF…

  22. My trainer majored in this and uhhh let’s just say she worked at a gym that controlled her in a bad way and she struggled financially. Gyms are NOT good to work for because they treat you awful. I don’t even think she even touched $30k. She was so sweet but did not deserve such a low salary and to be treated bad.

    I love exercise and health but I can do this on the side for myself lol. No need to go to school for it Bc it doesn’t pay unless you somehow become the 1% in Hollywood.

  23. I’m approaching the end of my sports science at university experience as i am a third year. If I could go back, I would of chose a different degree, don’t see many jobs that are available with the degree
