The Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology prepares individuals for physical activity program leadership in both the public and private settings. The program is designed to provide a scientific and pedagogical foundation with multiple experiences that enable students to observe, assist, coach, and create programs that encourage physical activity across the age spectrum.
To ensure that all students develop a solid academic foundation, all first-time, first-year freshman students (regardless of intended major) must obtain academic advising and clearance for registration from a University College academic adviser during their first year. After the first year, students should seek advisement from the BA Kinesiology Advisor in the Department of Kinesiology. Transfer students must seek academic advising from the BA Kinesiology Advisor in the Department of Kinesiology immediately.
Admission to the BA in Kinesiology (non-teaching) degree plan requires the following:
