This program offered by the Department of Kinesiology requires the completion of 120 semester hours as specified below and leads to the bachelor of science in education degree. The program does not lead to professional certification as a teacher. A prospective exercise and sport science student must (a) complete 45 hours of applicable courses toward the degree, and (b) have at least a 2.0 GPA before taking upper-division (300-level or above) courses in the program of study.
