Minor in Kinesiology

The Minor in Kinesiology is open to majors from all UIC units and colleges. Students are eligible 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 (preference given to students who have completed this course 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 many 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 may need to register for the courses needed through an academic advisor in the Department of Kinesiology and Nutrition.
