Summary of Requirements

University Requirements

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

All University GenEd courses must be completed with a minimum grade of C- in order to count toward graduation; however, students are encouraged to aim for the B grade or higher to improve their chances for successful admission to their graduate program of choice. It should be noted that the Department of Kinesiology requires KINS 1223 Human Anatomy and Physiology I and KINS 1224 Human Anatomy and Physiology II to fulfill the GenEd Science & Technology requirement. Further note that KINS 1223 and KINS 1224 are required prerequisites for admission to the majority of health profession graduate programs, and students are encouraged to earn a B or better in those classes.

All Temple students must take a minimum of two writing-intensive courses as part of the major. The specific writing-intensive courses for this major are KINS 3096 and KINS 4096.

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 .

Major Requirements

Students are advised to maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.00 (B) since entry into graduate programs in the health professions is highly competitive. Although all required professional application courses must be completed with a minimum grade of C to count toward graduation, a grade of B or better in the specific prerequisites is required for almost all health profession graduate programs.
