The Department of Kinesiology offers an interdisciplinary curriculum for nonmajors, which is designed to provide students with the basic knowledge of human movement and sport sciences. The minor consists of courses offered by several options within the department.

Kinesiology Minor Requirements

  1. Complete a minimum of 20 credits approved by the department minor advisor. All must be KIN courses.
  2. Must have a C- (or better) in all graded courses. Pass/Fail option may NOT be used. Courses designated Credit/Fail MAY be used.
  3. No more than 8 credits may satisfy BOTH major and minor requirements.
  4. No more than 6 of the 20 credits may be in activity or coaching courses.

Please note:  The designation of the completed minor will be "Kinesiology" which means that you cannot minor in any of the majors (i.e. athletic training, exercise science, health and physical education, outdoor education, or sport studies). However, you may create an emphasis by carefully selecting appropriate courses so that anyone looking at your final UNH transcript will be able to see the emphasis.
