Bachelor of Arts in Health and Kinesiology

Total Semester Credit Hours=120

The mission of the Bachelor of Arts Degree Program in Health and Kinesiology is to provide a broad understanding of both health and kinesiology as the basis for post-baccalaureate professional or graduate studies (e.g., medicine, physical therapy, exercise science), or entry-level positions in related fields (e.g., health, fitness). This program provides broad exposure to both health and kinesiology and gives flexibility with elective courses to design a program appropriate to academic and career goals. The student may use electives for further study of health and/or kinesiology.
