Dr. Chase:





Welcome to the Kinesiology and Health Promotion Department! You have chosen a great major that will lead you to an incredible career in a variety of settings. Our main goal is to facilitate a timely graduation for you while providing a quality education in the field of kinesiology and health promotion. Here's what to expect during your time with us:

  1. There are two bachelor's degree programs: General Option and Pedagogy. Under the General Option subplan, there are three emphases to choose from: Exercise Science, Health Promotion, and Sociocultural. Any non-KHP students who want to change their major in the Fall or Spring must attend a Change of Major Workshop prior to doing so. You must also meet the requirements to change to your desired major. Please see Change of Major/Adding a Minor FAQ for more information.


    External Change of Major Workshop: Fall 2021

    (any majors outside of KIN wanting to switch into KIN- General or Pedagogy)

    Date: Thursday, September 9, 2021

    Time: 12:00PM-1:00PM

    Room: Zoom Meeting ID 874-026-1549 Password: Change

    Note: Students will only be allowed to attend this meeting using their CPP email.

    *You must attend the above change of major meeting if you wish to change your major to Kinesiology.

    **If you are looking to switch into Pedagogy or are already in the KIN major and are looking to switch options, please contact Dr. Chase during her office hours.

  2. If you are an accepted Kinesiology Major student, you will meet one-on-one with an academic advisor from the College of Science Advising Center . You will create a Grad Plan and Individual Academic Plan (IAP) prior to your meeting so that an advisor can review it. After your Initial Advisory Meeting, you will be required to check-in with your advisor at least once a year (once a semester is best).
  3. You should join the KHP Club. The KHP Club is a great way to network and socialize with other KHP majors. Also, the KHP Club provides experiences for professional growth and development.
  4. If you are interested in Pre-Med information, please contact Ansel Zhao at
