Baccalaureate Degree Requirements Advising Sheet

Kinesiology B.A.: Exercise Science Concentration

This is a concentration within the Bachelor of Arts program in Kinesiology .


1. Complete the Baccalaureate Degree Requirements.

A student must comply with all University regulations and satisfy the following requirements:

  1. Units and Residency  (minimum of 120 units: 40 units of upper division coursework and 30 semester units at Stanislaus State. At least 24 of these 30 units must be earned in upper-division courses, at least 12 must be in the major, and at least 9 must be applicable to General Education-Breadth requirements)
  2. Grade Point Average  (minimum grade point average of 2.0 (C) or better)
  3. General Education  (minimum of 49 units)
  4. Upper Division Writing Proficiency  (minimum of 3 units)
    - Pass the Writing Proficiency Screening Test (WPST)
    - Writing Proficiency (WP) Course (may double count in the major)
  5. United States Constitution and California State and Local Government  (minimum of 3 units)
  6. Multicultural Requirement  (minimum of 3 units) (may double count with General Education requirements or in the major)

Subsequently all students must submit an application for graduation and receive approval from the major advisor, department chair, and Director of Academic Advising. For more information see the Baccalaureate Degree Requirements .

Several prerequisites for the concentration satisfy General Education requirements (see #2 below - prerequisites to the major).  This concentration does not qualify students for admission to the Single Subject Credential Program.  Students are strongly suggested to get advising early in their program to help meet career objectives.  Each course counted toward the major, including prerequisites, must be completed with a grade of C- (1.9) or higher.  All courses counted toward the major (both within and outside the Department) must be taken on a letter grade basis.  Most professional post-graduate degree programs (e.g., graduate schools, Physical Therapy schools, and Occupational Therapy schools) have a prerequisite “repeat” policy that only allows a course to be taken twice for a passing grade (a co ruse is considered a “repeat” even if it is taken at a different university).

2. Complete the prerequisites to the major:

(21 units)

3. The Major

(43-47 units)
