2009-2010 Undergraduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Exercise Science Major, BS in Education


Progression Requirements

Admission into the exercise science major requires a minimum undergraduate cumulative GPA of 2.5 after a minimum of 45 hours of course work and completion of EXSC 100 , CHEM 120 , and PHYS 221 .

Students must be admitted to the exercise science major prior to the completion of 75 hours of course work. Only in exceptional circumstances will students be admitted to the major if more than 75 hours of college course work have been completed, either at the University of Tennessee or elsewhere. Applications to the exercise science major can be obtained by visiting HPER 322. Once the application is complete and all requirements are met, students will be scheduled for a transcript evaluation with an exercise science faculty member.

Any professional courses, taken before or after progression into the exercise science program, must be passed with a minimum grade of C. No professional courses with a grade below C will be counted toward the major. Professional courses are BCMB 230 , all exercise science courses, and all professional electives.

Students admitted into the exercise science major must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 thereafter to remain in good academic standing and to register for all 400-level exercise science courses. Students with less than a 2.5 GPA for two consecutive semesters will be dropped from the program.

Service Learning Honors Program

Exercise Science majors have the opportunity to participate in the college’s Service Learning Honors Program. For eligibility and requirements, see Service Learning Honors Program .
