Kinesiology Cognates & Minors

Kinesiology careers may deal with human movement, physical activity, nutrition, human health and wellness. The major provides excellent preparation for graduate school programs in medicine and clinical health care. The curriculum includes courses in Kinesiology, General Science, University Writing and Integrative Studies. In addition, students choose a career cognate, adding courses related to their choice for a minimum of twelve credits. However, depending on the choice, twenty to thirty cognate credits may be required as preparation for graduate school. Career cognates are not visible on transcripts and are used as career emphases areas for résumés and graduate schools.
