Minor in Kinesiology
The Minor in Kinesiology is open to Nutrition majors and to majors from other units and colleges. Students will be allowed to complete the minor area of study within Kinesiology if they meet the minimum GPA of 2.50/4.00 at the time of application and have completed BIOS 110 with a grade of C or higher. Students must submit a request form online. Students outside the College of Applied Health Sciences must also consult their home colleges about acceptability and applicability of Kinesiology course credit toward their degree. Registration for all KN courses is restricted to students in the College of Applied Health Sciences; therefore, students outside the College of Applied Health Sciences seeking a minor will need to register for the courses needed through the academic advisor in the Department of Kinesiology and Nutrition. A minimum GPA of 2.00/4.00 is required to complete the minor field.
