ADDITION OF THE EXISTING MAJOR IN PLAN I-KINESIOLOGY, AND TITLE CHANGE FROM PLAN-I KINESIOLOGY TO KINESIOLOGY AND HEALTH, FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE, PLAN I, IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

On page 259, in the section DEGREES, add the following after the major in Jewish studies:

Kinesiology and Health

The College of Liberal Arts offers this intercollege major in cooperation with the College of Education. The major in kinesiology and health is appropriate for students who prefer a traditional liberal arts education to the more specialized training provided by the Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. The Bachelor of Arts with a major in kinesiology and health does not prepare students for teacher certification.

Major:
Thirty semester hours in kinesiology, including at least eighteen hours of upper-division coursework. Although students are free to choose any kinesiology courses other than Kinesiology 119, those with specific career interests are encouraged to follow the advising track for exercise science, health, or sports studies. Information about these tracks is available from the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education.

Minor for kinesiology and health majors: Eighteen semester hours, including at least nine hours of upper-division coursework, in any one other field of study in the University. Nine of the required hours must be taken in residence.

Rationale: The College of Liberal Arts has been awarding a BA degree with a major in Plan I-Kinesiology for over 20 years. At the request of the Kinesiology department, and for the benefit of our students, we would like to list the major and minor requirements along with our other majors.

For the title change from Plan I - Kinesiology to 'Kinesiology and Health', this is being done at the request of the Kinesiology department, to better reflect the content and focus of the BA Kinesiology degree.
