CHANGES TO THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN KINESIOLOGY IN
THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION CHAPTER OF
THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG 2006-2008



On pages 112-115, under the heading DEGREES, in the College of Education chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make the following changes:


BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN KINESIOLOGY

The field of kinesiology consists of biomechanical, physiological, psychological, and sociocultural approaches to the study of movement. The Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology degree program offers four majors: athletic training, health promotion and fitness, kinesiology, and sport management. Within the kinesiology major, students choose from two options: general kinesiology (non­certification), and all-level teacher certification. The kinesiology certification program is designed for students interested in studying human movement as a background for teacher certification in physical education; students who have completed the program may be entitled to teach in [grades one through twelve] prekindergarten through grade twelve.

The general kinesiology (noncertification) program is appropriate preparation for further study in sport and exercise sciences or in movement-related areas such as physical therapy and sport medicine. The health promotion and fitness major is designed to prepare graduates for a number of professions involving wellness, fitness, rehabilitation, and disease prevention. The sport management major is designed for students who are interested in the organization, marketing, and management of sports programs. The athletic training major is designed to prepare the student for a career as an athletic trainer. The major is also appropriate for students interested in continuing their education in medicine, sports medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or another allied health care profession.

A total of at least 130 semester hours of credit, forty-two of which must be upper-division, is required for the degree. The curriculum for the degree has three components: basic education requirements, major requirements, and electives.

BASIC EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS

The basic education requirements below apply to all majors leading to the Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology degree. However, the kinesiology teacher certification option calls for specific courses to meet some of the basic education requirements; information about these [modifications] courses is available in the advising offices in George I. Sánchez Building 216 and Bellmont Hall 222.

AREA A: ENGLISH COMPOSITION AND LITERATURE, WRITING, FOREIGN LANGUAGE

1. English composition and literature: Rhetoric and Composition 306, English 316K.
2. Writing: In addition, the student must complete six semester hours in courses certified as having a substantial writing component. These courses are identified in the Course Schedule. At least three of these six semester hours must be at the upper-division level.
3. Foreign language: [All beginning students entering the College of Education must have completed two years in a single foreign language in high school. In addition, students] Students must demonstrate proficiency in a single foreign language equivalent to that shown by completion of the second college semester in the language; proficiency is usually shown by earning credit for language courses 506 and 507 or the equivalent. Prospective Texas teachers are strongly encouraged to take Spanish to fulfill the language requirement.
   Although the foreign language requirement is the attainment of a certain proficiency, rather than the completion of a specified number of hours, the courses taken to gain this proficiency are not electives and may not be taken on the pass/fail basis. Any part of the requirement may be fulfilled by credit by examination.



4310


     Courses used to fulfill the foreign language requirement must be language courses; literature-in-translation courses, for example, may not be counted.
   College of Education students who are not pursuing teacher certification may substitute nine semester hours in specific multicultural and language/communication courses for the foreign language requirement. This program is available only to students who have completed two years of a single foreign language in high school. A list of the acceptable substitute courses is available in the Student Dean’s Office, George I. Sánchez Building 216, and in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education, Bellmont 222.

AREA B: SOCIAL SCIENCES

1. History 315K and 315L, or six semester hours in other United States history courses that fulfill the legislative requirement described in chapter 1.
2. Government 310L and 312L.
3. Psychology 301.
4. Three semester hours in anthropology, economics, geography, linguistics, or sociology.

AREA C: MATHEMATICS AND NATURAL SCIENCES

1. Three semester hours of mathematics. Kinesiology and athletic training majors must complete either Mathematics 305G or coursework in calculus. Health promotion and fitness and sport management majors may choose any mathematics course, excluding Mathematics 301.
2. Biology [211 and 212, or Biology] 301L or 311C.
3. Six semester hours of chemistry. [Chemistry 313N and 314N are recommended.]
4. [Five or six] Six additional semester hours chosen from astronomy, biology, chemistry, computer applications, computer sciences, geological sciences, mathematics, physical science, physics, experimental psychology, physical anthropology, physical geography, and history of science and philosophy of science. [A computer applications course and Chemistry 113P and 114P are recommended to fulfill this requirement. Health promotion and fitness majors may also count coursework in computer literacy and management information systems toward this requirement.]

Kinesiology majors seeking teacher certification must take at least one laboratory course as part of the science requirement.

AREA D: GENERAL CULTURE

1. Three semester hours in architecture, art (including art history, design, studio art, visual art studies), classics (including classical civilization, Greek, Latin), drama, fine arts, music (including music, instruments, ensemble), philosophy (excluding courses in logic), or theatre and dance.
2. Communication Studies 306M.

MAJOR REQUIREMENTS


ATHLETIC TRANING[3]

Students who plan to major in athletic training must [apply for admission to the program] be admitted to the Athletic Training Educational Program (ATEP). Admission is based on a competitive application process. The student’s grade point average and completion of prescribed coursework are factors in the admission decision. Applicants must also participate in the Directed Observation Program, meet a set of technical standards, pass a health assessment/physical examination, provide proof of immunizations and vaccinations, submit letters of recommendation, and submit additional application documents. More information about the admission process and requirements is available from an academic adviser and at http://www.edb.utexas.edu/atep/main.htm.

In addition to completing the coursework associated with the athletic training major, students in the ATEP must participate in a series of clinical assignments and become adept in a set of educational competencies and clinical proficiencies. Students who plan to take the Board of Certification (BOC) examination or the state licensure examination for athletic trainers must complete the ATEP.

RATIONALE:
This major received Coordinating Board approval late in the catalog cycle for 2004-2006. We should have included the description in the previous catalog.

The Athletic Training Educational Program accrediting body mandated the changes for athletic training accreditation, and we have modified our program to comply with those changes.
