The Kinesiology faculty recognizes that some students are attracted to a Kinesiology Minor because they wish to coach athletes in a K-12 or a college and university setting. If a student desires to coach athletes as their primary professional goal, they are strongly encouraged to major in Kinesiology. For those students who plan to coach as an avocation, the Coaching Minor may be appropriate. This minor includes courses that have direct applicability to coaching. Students seeking a Bachelor Degree in Kinesiology or a Bachelor of Athletic Training must pass each course taken for the major, the minor, and all prerequisites for the courses in the Kinesiology degree plans with a grade of C or better.
A Coaching Minor may be obtained by successfully completing the following 22 semester credit hours in Kinesiology:
Physical activity and forms of movement courses, including those labeled KINE 1109-1134, KINE 1155-KINE 1159, KINE 1309, or KINE 1333 are encouraged, but do not count toward the 22 credit hour requirement.
