Kinesiology students interested in physical or occupational therapy are encouraged to choose this degree option.

Interested in Physical Therapy?

The exercise science option can provide you with the knowledge and background needed to pursue a career in physical therapy and is a common choice for interested PT students.
Minor in Kinesiology
- Many ASU degree programs require students to choose a minor. If you are pursuing a career in any exercise-, sport- or recreation-related business or industry, you may want to consider kinesiology as your minor.
- Kinesiology classes required for a minor: Kinesiology 2361 and Kinesiology 3333, Athletic Training 3360, and nine additional hours of kinesiology.

Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (B.I.S.)
The B.I.S. degree gives you the opportunity to apply course work in multiple fields towards an undergraduate degree. You are required to complete three 18-hour areas of concentration, one of which can be kinesiology. It is meant for students whose career goals call for training in more than one field or who want a broad knowledge in several fields rather than a depth of knowledge in a single discipline. If you are seeking a B.I.S. degree, you must declare it as your major in the same manner and at the same time as other students declare a major. For more information about the B.I.S. degree, refer to the current ASU Catalog or contact the College of Arts and Sciences.
