University Majors

California Polytechnic University, Pomona
Kinesiology B.S. with Health Promotion Option

The department offers an undergraduate curriculum divided into three sub-plans: pedagogy, exercise science, and health promotion. These sub-plans are designed to meet a variety of student needs and interests. Most students who choose the pedagogy sub-plan will obtain a California teaching credential which will qualify them to teach physical education in the state`s public and private schools at either the elementary or secondary level. Those who choose the adapted physical education emphasis will become qualified to obtain the Adapted Physical Education Specialist Credential. The department also provides selected coursework that qualifies students with a major other than kinesiology to earn a physical education teaching credential (a supplementary authorization). Students may prepare themselves to coach athletic teams by selecting appropriate courses.

The health promotion sub-plan prepares students to work as a wellness professional in corporate settings and to work as a health educator in community or government agencies.

In addition to serving its own majors, the KHP Department provides required and elective courses in kinesiology and health to meet the educational needs throughout the University. The activity Program provides courses such as basketball, aerobics, karate, gymnastics, and weightlifting.

The department also offers a curriculum that leads to a Master of Science degree in Kinesiology. A description of this program can be found in the `Graduate Studies` section of the catalog.
