Degrees

Degrees

  • Undergraduate: A major in Kinesiology can lead to the Bachelor of Science Degree. Applications to the undergraduate Athletic Training major are no longer being accepted as this major will only be taught out as we transition the program.

  • Graduate: The Department does not currently offer a graduate program in Kinesiology. The Department has proposed a Master's of Science degree in Athletic Training, which is currently in the approval process.  Please see the Department for additional information.

    Admission/Graduation Requirements

    Admission/Graduation Requirements

    Kinesiology

    Admission to the Kinesiology Emphases is competitive; students interested in applying to one of the programs should submit an admission portfolio the semester in which the requirements are met.  Portfolios are assessed and the top students gain entry into the Major/Emphases.  Minimum grade requirements include: grade of B or better in Kinesiology 121, passing grade in Kinesiology 122, and grade C or better in Biology 105, 211 and Kinesiology 170.  A GPA is computed from three of the following courses: Kinesiology 171, 173, Psychology 101, 102, 110, Math 104, Biology 212, Chemistry 105, Physics 107, Anthropology 102, 202, WBIS 188, English 101 or 102, Communication 111, Sociology 101 or 151, Philosophy 101, and Nursing 200, 215. Each student’s overall GPA, GPA in the required courses and three additional courses is used as a part of the selection process.   Students also submit a cover letter, resume, and essay in an online portfolio.  Further information is provided on the department website and in Kinesiology 122.

    Athletic Training

    The Athletic Training program at UW Oshkosh is in the process of transitioning the undergraduate major in Athletic Training to the graduate level. The last admissions cohort to be accepted in the BS degree in Athletic Training major will be at the end of the Spring 2017 semester.  Prospective freshmen interested in Athletic Training should inquire about the undergraduate Kinesiology major as a route to pursue Athletic Training.
