DELETION OF THE INTERCOLLEGE MAJOR IN KINESIOLOGY AND HEALTH FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE IN
THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF
THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG 2006-2008


On page 277, under the heading DEGREES, in the MAJORS AND MINORS subsection in the College of Liberal Arts chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make the following changes:


[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 of 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 administered this intercollege major at the request of the College of Education for many years. Since the College of Education now has a non-certification program within their Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology, and since the kinesiology department has been giving priority registration status to education students over our BA kinesiology students, we have decided to discontinue the practice of allowing intercollege majors. The major in kinesiology and health is the final intercollege major offered in Liberal Arts.
