Minor

Exercise Physiology Minor (54 credits)

The kinesiology program offers a minor in exercise physiology for non-kinesiology majors. Kinesiology majors may not add the exercise physiology minor. With an emphasis on movement and the functioning of human body due to exercise, the exercise physiology minor is an excellent addition for students interested in incorporation fitness and wellness into their major, or for those who love to exercise and be active and want to understand more about how the body responds.

Four-Year Sample Plan

A degree pathway is important to student success. To help you explore your major coursework, and for you to begin the process of creating an individualized academic plan we have created a sample plan for the kinesiology major. These plans also include academic and co-curricular opportunities ideas for each academic year.

This is a sample plan intended for informational purposes only. Students will work with their OSU academic advisor to create degree plan that works best for each kinesiology student.
