CHANGES TO THE PHYSICAL CULTURE AND SPORTS MAJOR IN THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION CHAPTER OF THE
UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2010-2012


NAME OF DEGREE PROGRAM(S): Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Health: Physical Culture and Sports

EXPLAIN CHANGE(S) TO DEGREE PROGRAM:
Students in this major will not be required to take the prescribed biology and chemistry courses that some other kinesiology and health majors must take.
Students in this major will be required to complete a 15-semester hour minor.

Indicate pages in the undergraduate catalog where changes will be made. page 129

GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR CHANGE(S):
This major is more closely aligned with the sport management major, in that it is not a movement science major. Consequently students will not be required to take biology and chemistry. This should have been articulated in the previous catalog.
The minor requirement is consistent with other majors in kinesiology and health. This will not increase the overall number of semester hours for the degree, but will reduce the number of elective hours required.

If yes, have the other colleges/schools been informed of the proposed changes? If so, please indicate their responses: N/A

Will this proposal change the number of required hours for degree completion? If yes, please explain. No.
