Proposed changes to the Bachelor of Science in The Kinesiology major in the college of education chapter in the Undergraduate Catalog, 2012-2014

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


IF THE ANSWER TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS IS YES, THE COLLEGE MUST CONSULT NEAL ARMSTRONG WHO WILL DETERMINE WHETHER SACS-COC APPROVAL IS NEEDED.:
• Is this a new degree program? No
• Does the program offer courses that will be taught off campus? No
• Will courses in this program be delivered electronically? No

EXPLAIN CHANGE TO DEGREE PROGRAM:
 
  • We have added five of the university recommended flag requirements (two writing flags, cultural diversity in the United States, ethics and leadership, global cultures, and quantitative reasoning) to our exercise science major. Adding flag requirements are an effort on the part of the college to eventually have all 6 flags in each major.

  • Prescribed Work. #5. We are replacing the three-semester-hour fine arts requirement outside the core curriculum previously required in this degree with a three-semester-hour global cultures flag requirement. This does not affect the VAPA requirement, and does not increase the overall number of semester hours to complete the degree.


Indicate pages in the Undergraduate Catalog where changes will be made.
