DOCUMENTS OF THE GENERAL FACULTY

PROPOSAL TO CREATE AN ATHLETIC TRAINING MAJOR IN THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

Jan Todd, undergraduate coordinator for kinesiology and health education, has filed with the secretary of the Faculty Council the following proposal to create an athletic training major in the College of Education chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog. The Kinesiology Undergraduate Advisory Committee approved the proposal in the fall of 2002. It was submitted to the secretary on April 4, 2002, and was approved by the College of Education Curriculum Committee on April 16, 2002. Revisions from the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education were received on April 23, 2002. The Office of Official Publications completed its review of the proposal on April 30, 2002. The secretary has classified this proposal as legislation of exclusive application and primary interest to a single college or school.

Due to time constraints, the proposal will be introduced as emergency legislation at the Faculty Council meeting on May 6, 2002, rather than on a no-protest basis.

Students pursuing National Athletic Trainers' Association Board of Certification (NATABOC) athletic training certification must also complete Educational Psychology 367 (Topic 1: Introduction to Individual Counseling and Psychotherapy) and Pharmacy 338. These courses may be counted toward the degree as electives.
2.
Prescribed work in the area of specialization
a.
Major: Forty-five semester hours, consisting of
1.
Kinesiology 119 (Topic 10: Conditioning).
2.

Twelve hours of elective coursework in kinesiology, including at least nine hours of upper-division coursework.
