Rehabilitative Science (B.S.)

The physiological benefits of exercise upon the human condition are well documented; moreover, research continues to demonstrate the benefits of physical activity on social, spiritual and mental/ emotional well being. Attaining knowledge and skills related to physical health, fitness and wellness allows for the promotion of total well being. It is the aim of the Kinesiology department to:

  1. Promote the benefits of an active lifestyle to the campus community.
  2. Prepare students for graduate school who wish to attend.
  3. Prepare professional educators in the field of Physical Education.
  4. Prepare professionals for careers in health, fitness, and wellness industries.
  5. Prepare athletic trainers for careers in education, clinical practice, and amateur or professional sports.


  1. Students will demonstrate a working knowledge of muscular function. 
  2. Students will contrast environmental factors and their effect on human performance.

Retention and Progression Policy for Rehabilitative Science


Students must earn a minimum grade of "C" in all courses within the major and maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 in all courses.

Failure to maintain acceptable academic standards as listed above will result in the student being placed on probationary status for one semester.  If the student shows a lack of academic progress and has not achieved an acceptable GPA (3.0 cumulative minimum) by the end of the probationary semester, the student may be dismissed from the program.  Once academic standards have been met the student may apply for readmission to the program. Annually after admission, the student must also complete the following requirements.  Students that fail to complete the following may be removed from the program:

• Completion of Blood-borne Pathogen, OSHA, and/or Universal Precautions Training
• Completion of HIPAA/FERPA Confidentiality Training

Required Cost During Matriculation for Rehabilitative Science


Along with university tuition, rehabilitative science students may be required to pay course fees each semester to cover the cost of liability insurance and materials for the program.  It is also the student's responsibility to maintain current certifications, pay for visits related to physical examination, annual immunizations, and testing.  Students are also responsible for travel to and from observation and/or internship sites.
