Major Requirements for Kinesiology - Exercise Science Emphasis
Kinesiology Program-Exercise Science Emphasis
HPER Complex North 241
Minimum Degree Hours: 122
Minimum Major Hours: 77
This emphasis is dedicated to helping students better understand the disciplines within Kinesiology (KINES); including pedagogy, kinesiology, exercise physiology, and sport/exercise psychology. The 33 hours of required electives allow students to supplement and enhance their KINES education with additional courses in Kinesiology, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Nutrition, Health Promotion (HEDU), and Parks, Recreation, and Tourism (PRT). Most students emphasizing in this area plan on attending a graduate and/or professional degree program after their undergraduate degree. Entry into post-graduation opportunities that are related to kinesiology will necessitate consultation with advisors so that appropriate departmental and allied field course work may be elected. Some of these opportunities include: degree programs in the fields of kinesiology, medicine, osteopathic medicine, dentistry, nursing, gerontology (certificate available), physical therapy, occupational therapy and physician’s assistant, as well as exercise/fitness related professions.
- All required course work must be completed with a C- or better.
