The Kinesiology Professional Division offers a diverse program of undergraduate study. Students may major or minor in the division and pursue teaching or non-teaching goals.
The Kinesiology major consists of at least 40 semester hours of department course work, 12 of which must be advanced. The minor is a 21-hour program of which 6 hours must be advanced. The major with emphasis in teaching leads to an all-level certificate which certifies the graduate to teach all grades.
An Interdisciplinary Studies major (elementary) may be certified to teach physical education at the elementary level by completing a 19-hour area of specialization.
Those students desiring to pursue a non-teaching major are required to complete a 40-hour program of prescribed course work. The decision to pursue this option generally leads to employment in the health fitness and related fields. Students who select this option are encouraged to make plans to attend graduate school following completion of this program.
