Department of Kinesiology, Health, and Leisure Studies

Development Characteristics
Physical and mental health are critical and relevant topics in today’s society. In today’s fast-paced and affluent environment, personal health is of utmost importance. Sports and leisure activities play an important role in the promotion of a healthy lifestyle. The definition of “good health” varies and is sometimes difficult to delineate. Only with complete understanding of health can one design the best method to reach the goal.
With this in mind, the University established the first and only Kinesiology, Health, and Leisure department among public universities in Taiwan.
The goal of this department is to develop knowledge and leadership in sports science and leisure management along with communication skills and information technology. Built on a foundation of social and natural sciences, this program also draws on a broad range of disciplines to provide high-quality undergraduate education to current and future professionals.

Our vision is to integrate the specialties from the fields of kinesiology, health, and leisure studies, to promote the activity of sports and leisure behaviors, and to increase the wellness of the general public.
Our goal is to provide excellent scholarly research, teaching and outreach in educating students on two subject fields:
1.Sport instruction and planning with integration of health promotion.
2.Leisure planning and management with integration of health promotion. Postgraduate Opportunities
