Kinesiology - Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology

The Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology degree program consists of 15 credit hours of core coursework, plus additional coursework in one of four concentration areas: Exercise Science, Clinical Exercise Science, Performance Psychology, or Physical Education. For the required number of concentration area credit hours see the program descriptions below. Regardless of the concentration, students are required to complete 120 total semester hours for the Kinesiology degree. Additionally, students pursuing a Kinesiology degree will be responsible to ensure that they complete 48 upper division credits (300 and 400 level courses). Kinesiology students must maintain a minimum 2.75 GPA in order to enroll in most upper division SP M and PE P courses. Some courses in the Clinical Exercise Science Concentration require a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. ENGL 111G, Area II courses, all Kinesiology Core courses, concentration courses, and approved electives must be completed with a grade of C- or better.

Successful completion of the Kinesiology degree will support a variety of careers in health sciences, biomedical research, and teaching. Information about Kinesiology and potential employment opportunities may be obtained at the Department of Kinesiology and Dance in the Activity Center 204, phone 646-2215.
