The mission and vision statements of the Department of Kinesiology
and Health Promotion are based on a Polytechnic approach that includes
three domains of learning (psychomotor, cognitive, and affective).
The department mission and vision statements were developed to reflect
and compliment the Cal Poly Pomona and the College of Science respective
mission and vision statements.
The Kinesiology and Health Promotion undergraduate program at Cal Poly Pomona is divided into three subplans (Exercise Science, Pedagogy, and Health Promotion). Based on the mission and vision of the college and university, five student learning outcomes have been identified that reflect general preparation in the overall Kinesiology and Health Promotion undergraduate program. Learning outcomes specific to each subplan also have been identified to delineate how the program meets specific student needs. Embedded within each of the specific subplans, learning outcomes include objectives, an implementation strategy, and an assessment mechanism.
Student Learning Outcome # 1
Students will gain knowledge of the history and broad content within the disciplines of kinesiology and health promotion and develop skills to enable the synthesis of concepts across disciplines.
Student Learning Outcome # 2
Students will develop communication skills (oral and written), interpersonal skills, critical thinking skills, technological skills, and reflective skills necessary to enhance scholarly pursuits and become lifelong learners within the disciplines of kinesiology and health promotion.
Student Learning Outcome # 3
Students will perform basic motor skills and patterns and apply a variety of concepts, theories, and methods common to kinesiology and health promotion and become equipped with the skills necessary to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
Student Learning Outcome # 4
Students will utilize statistical and measurement concepts (qualitative and quantitative) to assess student/client performance and program effectiveness.
Student Learning Outcome #5
Students will demonstrate knowledge of professional and ethical decision making skills and civic responsibility.
