Students in a Kinesiology program will need 24.0 course units in the Natural and Physical Sciences as follows:
12.0 units at any level;
9.0 units at the 200 level or above; and
3.0 units at the 300 level or above.
As defined in the Arts and Science Calendar, the following disciplines are considered a part of the Natural and Physical Sciences: Anatomy (excluding ANAT 315/316), Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Computing (Cognitive Science), Environmental Science (see below for specific courses), Geography (see below for specific courses), Geological Sciences, Life Sciences (including Anatomy, Microbiology, Pharmacology), Mathematics, Physics and Astronomy, Psychology (see below for specific courses) and Statistics.
Students should plan on taking any necessary prerequisites for upper-year (200-level and above) courses. Plan ahead, starting in first year.
Many disciplines have a limited number of seats in upper-year courses for students outside of their discipline. Check out the individual department policy on access to courses with the appropriate Undergraduate Office.
Not all 300-level and above courses are offered every year due to faculty sabbaticals, administrative or other leaves of absence or due to timetabling constraints. Have a strategy in place for this contingency.
Natural and Physical Sciences versus Social Sciences
Biomedical Sciences, Environmental Sciences, Geography and Psychology all also offer courses that are classified as Social Sciences. Please refer to the following links to confirm the classification of a given course. If in doubt, use the Planner/Advisement Report on SOLUS. (Note: These lists are reviewed annually before July registration.)
