Summary of Requirements

University Requirements

All new students are required to complete the university's General Education (GenEd) curriculum.

All Temple students must take a minimum of two writing-intensive courses as part of the major. The specific writing-intensive courses required for this major are KINS 3296 and KINS 4396.

College Requirement

All College of Public Health undergraduates must successfully complete the College Core Course, HRPR 1001 Public Health: The Way We Live, Work and Play.

Clearance Requirements

Please note the Exercise and Sport Science program requires students to complete clinical/field education experiences at facilities both on and off the University campus. Many of these placements may require that you have personal health insurance. Additionally, these placements may require criminal background checks, Act 33/34 clearances, health clearances and immunizations and perhaps a drug screen. The results of these requirements may limit and potentially eliminate placement options for the student which can, in turn, result in an inability to meet graduation requirements.
