Applicants who satisfy freshman or transfer requirements for admission to the University and who apply to either the Athletic Training OR Exercise Science majors are eligible for admission to the Pre-Kinesiology major. All students entering the university in Summer 2003 or later, will be required to complete the revised General Education requirements. A suggested sequence of courses for Pre-Kinesiology students that meet these General Education requirements as well as the prerequisites for both Exercise Science and Athletic Training can be found in the menu to the left.
Students who apply for either the Athletic Training OR Exercise Science major are initially classified as Pre-Kinesiology majors until they meet the following requirements: cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher; completion of 60 hours; and successful (grade of C or better) completion of ATRN/EXER 2150, ATRN/EXER 2294, ATRN 2295***, ATRN/EXER 2298, KNES 2168, KNES 2168L, KNES 2169, KNES 2169L, CHEM 1251, CHEM 1251L, CHEM 1252, and CHEM 1252L ** STAT 1222, MATH 1101, HLTH 2101**. Students wishing to pursue the Exercise Science major should choose the prefix EXER and Athletic Training majors the ATRN prefix for courses in the major. Students applying for the Athletic Training major must make a grade of C or higher in the above courses and have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher before making application to the ATRN major. Students applying for the Exercise Science major must make a grade of C or higher in the above courses and have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher before making application to the EXER major.
** Pre-Kinesiology majors are highly recommended to take LBST 2214 (Health and Quality of Life); this will substitute for HLTH 2101 (Healthy Lifestyles) as a required course and meet a general education requirement.
*** ATRN 2295 is required for those wanting to go into Athletic Training as a major.
*Remember this a recommended sequence for PKNS majors, it is fine to vary the sequence so long as you meet the prerequisites for the needed courses.
