Program Requirements

The B.S. in Kinesiology, option in Health Science program is a cohort-based program consisting of 2-years of full-time study. Each student is required to complete 15 semester units of "pre-Kinesiology core" courses and 63 units of study in residence with CSUSM. The pre-Kinesiology core may be completed prior to admission to the program but will also be provided during the first three terms if the student chooses to begin without these courses. The program is designed to be completed in 5 academic terms, including one summer.  Each year, CSUSM admits a new cohort during Fall Semester (late-August).  All classes will be held at the Temecula campus.
