Kinesiology Major, BS in Education


The Kinesiology major prepares students for a variety of careers in health-related fitness and for graduate or professional study in medicine, allied health professions (including physical therapy), and various fields within kinesiology (exercise physiology, biomechanics, sport psychology, etc.).

Progression and Retention Requirements

Admission into the kinesiology major requires a minimum undergraduate cumulative GPA of 2.5 after a minimum of 45 hours of coursework and completion of Kinesiology 100, Chemistry 120, and Physics 221.

Students must be admitted to the kinesiology major prior to the completion of 75 hours of coursework. Only in exceptional circumstances will students be admitted to the major if more than 75 hours of college coursework have been completed, either at the University of Tennessee or elsewhere. Applications to the Kinesiology 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 a Kinesiology faculty member.

Any professional courses, taken before or after progression into the kinesiology program, must be passed with a minimum letter grade of C. No professional courses with a grade below C will be counted toward the major. Professional courses are Biochemistry and Cellular and Molecular Biology 230, all kinesiology courses, and all professional electives.

Students admitted into the kinesiology major must have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 to register for all 400-level kinesiology classes.

Service Learning Honors Program

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