College Degree Requirements
Human Sciences Departments
Specific Degree Requirements
Specific requirements for some human science degrees are published in conjunction with the Catalog description of the major leading to the degree, with specific courses required in several Liberal Education outcomes.
Bachelor of Science Degree in the College of Education and Human Sciences
Candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Science from a human sciences department must fulfill the requirements for credits, curriculum, GPA, and University residency as specified in the section of this catalog titled University Graduation Requirements.(see University Graduation Requirements)
Placement Tests. The mathematics/foreign language placement tests are given during the orientation periods for new freshmen and transfers. Further information about the foreign language or the mathematics tests is available from the chair of the appropriate department.
University Graduation Requirements. All candidates for degrees must fulfill the requirements for credits, curriculum, GPA, and University residency as specified in the section of this catalog titled University Graduation Requirements.
Human Sciences Graduation Requirements: Grade Point Averages. All degree candidates must earn minimum resident and total GPAs of 2.00 or higher in both the major and the second program if one is required. The resident and total GPAs for the major are computed using all attempted credits applicable to the major including those offered by departments other than the major department. The resident and total GPAs for the second program are computed similarly.
Major-Minor and Major-Certificate Requirements. Each candidate for a baccalaureate degree must present one of the following:
- Comprehensive major (at least 59-60 credits)
- Standard major (at least 36 credits) plus one of the following:
- Another standard major (at least 36 credits), or
- A minor (at least 24 credits), or
- A certificate (12-18 credits)
No minor or certificate is required with a Comprehensive Major or with two majors of 36 credits each.
Certain degree programs which include Comprehensive Majors may require more than the minimum of 120 credits for graduation.
This major WILL NOT lead to licensure in physical education upon graduation.
Minimum GPA: at least 2.75 total

NOTE: The College of Education and Human Sciences LE requirements should be met if the student desires to pursue licensure in the future. In order to be eligible for future licensure, a student must achieve a 2.75 or higher total GPA upon graduation. Students must maintain a 2.75 or higher total GPA to remain in the Sport Pedagogy emphasis. Students will need to pursue additional course work and program requirements to receive licensure and should meet with their adviser to discuss career options. Students wanting to graduate with licensure in teaching should pursue the Physical Education Teaching emphasis. The Service-Learning requirement is met by completion of required coursework in this emphasis.
NOTE: No degree credit may be earned under the Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory option in any course presented for completion of a major or minor in Athletic Training or Kinesiology unless Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory is the only grading option available for a course.
