Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science

General Information

Motion Number: 1011.CAPC.011.C
Source Committee: Curriculum and Assessment Policy Committee
Motion Status: Approved, Pending Review by USG/BOR
Motion Type: Curricular
Motion Text: 

Proposed motion is a request to move the current concentration in exercise science, offered under the BS Degree in Health Education, to a standslone major: The Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. This will enable the Department of Kinesiology to seek external program accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP). The exercise science program continues to experience growth and has been successful in the placement of graduate students in physical therapy programs and, on occasion, medical school. The change to a standalone program will enhance the recruitment efforts, continue to assist graduates in graduate/professional school placements and strengthen the reputation of the program.
