Department of Health & Kinesiology

The Department of Health & Kinesiology offers minors in Public Health Education and Exercise Science.  Each minor consists of approximately twenty hours of coursework. 

The Public Health Education minor may be of interest to students who have a desire to understand health promotion and education in different settings including school sites, communities, business or government agencies.  

The minor in Exercise Science is designed for those who may be interested in personal fitness training but do not have an interest in completing a B.S. Degree in Kinesiology.
