In order to be student in the Kenny Howard Fellowship, you must be enrolled with Auburn University's Graduate School and major in a program within the Department of Kinesiology in the College of Education.
The Department of Kinesiology programs study human movement and physical activity. Kinesiology students can earn degrees leading to careers as physical and occupational therapists, health professionals, strength and conditioning specialists, certified teachers and much more (its instructional area includes exercise science, health promotion and physical education). Students benefit from the department's subscription to the "interventionist' model - that is, all teaching, research and public service is directed toward enhancing individuals' abilities to move and be physically active. Students learn how to intervene in the lives of those who wish to become healthier or improve their athletic performance.
The department equips students to improve health or performance of individuals by combining an educational focus with the intervention model. Experiences range from helping an elderly person remain well and fit, to motivating a young child to be more physically active, and to assisting an elite athlete run faster or jump higher.
