Interested students must first be admitted to the University, and must satisfy the THEA requirements. Students are admitted after review by a departmental committee; and, once admitted, they are assigned an official advisor who should be consulted on a semester or term basis and who will guide those students in need of being admitted to the Education Preparation Program in that process. The advisor will also advise students with regard to their status for graduation as they enter and complete the senior year. After completion of PE 112, KIN 211, KIN 212, KIN 127, KIN 233, and KIN 235 during the sophomore year, Kinesiology majors will be administered a departmental diagnostic comprehensive examination in KIN 302. All requirements for the Educator Preparation Program must be met (consult the previous section of this document under the College of Education), and students must have an overall GPA of 2.75 or better to enter the program. Courses designated as major courses must be completed with grades of “B” or better, where grades of “C-“ are unacceptable, and grade restrictions referenced for the Educator Preparation Program must also be adhered to. Prior to graduation, a comprehensive departmental exit examination is administered to seniors

Degree requirements are summarized below for the B.S. in Health Studies, B.S. in Kinesiology, and B.S. in Sport Management; however, students admitted to the Department who pursue these supporting degrees must seek advisement from their assigned faculty advisor because of the frequency with which certification requirements change as dictated by the State of Texas.

In summary, students who gain admission to the University must meet TSI responsibility, must petition the Department for admission; and must qualify for the Educator Preparation Program if their degree requirements lead to teacher certification. Requirements for the Educator Preparation Program should be reviewed by all interested students. Additional information may be obtained from the Department Office at (713) 313-7087.
