Health Studies or Kinesiology Minor

Health Sciences or Kinesiology may be chosen as a minor to satisfy certain baccalaureate degree programs with majors in other fields. The courses normally required for a minor in health sciences (18 hours) and a minor in kinesiology (18 hours plus eight semester hours of anatomy and physiology) are listed below. A student desiring to pursue a minor in health sciences with a major in psychology or nursing should see an adviser in Health and Kinesiology for an alternate curriculum prior to starting pursuit of the minor.
