EXPLAIN CHANGE TO DEGREE PROGRAM:
 
  • Physical Culture and Sports.  #2a. Kinesiology 349 will be required instead of KIN 311K.
  • Physical Culture and Sports. #2b. Instead of requiring KIN 348, students will take 6 semester hours from KIN 311K, KIN 348, and KIN 361. We are unable to offer enough sections of KIN 311K and KIN 348 to accommodate all of students in this major. Allowing them to choose from other courses will help this situation.
  • Physical Culture and Sports. #2e. KIN 360 will no longer be required for this major. KIN 360 was no longer deemed essential for this major.
