The mission of the Kinesiology program is to provide a broad and dynamic program to prepare students for graduate study and careers in exercise, sport, wellness, and allied health.
To be eligible for admission to the kinesiology major, a student must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.250 and have passed the L.KIN-101, L.BIO-115, and L.BIO-115L courses with a grade of C or better in each. Once admitted to the major, a student must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.250 throughout the course of study. Students who fail to maintain the minimum cumulative GPA requirement may be removed from the major or be prevented from enrolling in upper-level kinesiology courses.
To be eligible for graduation with a kinesiology major, a student must earn a C or better in all courses counted toward the major. Courses in which the student earns less than a C grade will not be accepted toward the major. In addition, a student‘s cumulative GPA must be at least a 2.250 to graduate with a degree in kinesiology.
Students must complete a minimum of 6 additional credits of KIN, ATR, or BIO prefix courses. Electives must be 200 level or above. No more than three credits of internship/practical experiences will be counted toward the six credit minimum. Elective courses must be chosen in consultation with a student’s advisor.
