See Arnold School listing for specific requirements.
*CMS, INF and VSR learning outcomes can be satisfied by approved overlay courses or by approved stand-alone courses. Up to two overlay and/or abbreviated courses can be used for these requirements.
The following courses may fulfill some of the Carolina Core requirements (or some minors) and must be completed for a BS degree from the Arnold School of Public Health. A minimum grade of C in these courses is required.
CHEM 112L - General Chemistry II Laboratory
A minimum grade of C in these courses is required.
Replace EXSC 530 with EXSC 330
Replace EXSC 530L with EXSC 330L
Add the option of EXSC 335 or EXSC 410
Students in Exercise Science must complete a minimum of 120 credit hours. Depending on specific course choices, students must complete an appropriate number of elective courses.
Each student must complete an EXSC cognate of 12 credit hours. The cognate is intended to support the course work in the major and enhance the student’s area of interest. EXSC cognate courses will be selected from EXSC courses that are 300 level and above. EXSC core requirement courses may not count towards the cognate. All EXSC cognate courses must be approved by the student’s academic advisor. A minimum grade of C in these courses is required.
Each student must complete a cognate of 12 credit hours. The cognate is intended to support the course work in the major. Depending on student interests, cognate courses may be selected from one or several units. A cognate differs from a minor in that the courses must be above the sophomore level and may be distributed over more than one subject area. Courses applied toward minimum Carolina Core requirements, EXSC core courses, or EXSC cognate courses cannot be counted toward the cognate. All cognate courses must be approved by the student’s academic advisor. A minimum grade of C in these courses is required.
Students majoring in Exercise Science may pursue minors offered by other units. In completing a minor, students may apply advisor‐approved courses to both the minor and cognate, or elective requirements.
EXSC 530 and 530L course numbers were changed to EXSC 330 and EXSC 330L to designate these as undergraduate entry level exercsie physiology courses, and to prevent duplication with an entry level gradaute exercise physiology course EXSC 780. The content of the nor the rigor of the courses will change. Since EXSC 530 and EXSC 530L are core Exercise Science courses, these changes also require amending the Exercise Science program to reflect these changes.
The field of Exercise Science is broad and includes physiology, motor control, biomechanics and behavior. Therefore, adding EXSC 335: Biomechanics of Human Movement and EXSC 410: Psychology of Physical Activity to the Exercise Science Major requirements is consistent with providing our students with a broad foundation in their chosen major. However, in order to ensure Exercise Science majors continue to have electives, our students should be offered the option of either EXSC 335 or EXSC 410 that best meets their interests and fits with their career aspirations.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We have approved the proposal and are moving it forward to the Faculty Senate. It is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
