- KINE 270 Foundations in Epidemiology
- KINE 303 Human Anatomy
- KINE 314 Dissection Human Anatomy Laboratory OR KINE 315 Human Anatomy Laboratory
- KINE 304 Human Physiology (GER2B)
- KINE 305 Human Physiology Laboratory (GER2B)(LAB)
- KINE 380 Introduction to Clinical Practice
- KINE 393 Health Ethics (GER7)
- KINE 394 Statistics and Evaluation (GER1) (or any introductory statistics course but credits for such courses will not count towards the 34 credits needed in the department)

- Chemistry307/353 Organic Chemistry II for Life Sciences
- Chemistry308/354 General Chemistry II for Life Sciences
All Chemistry courses must be taken with the laboratory courses.
Many of these courses are required by medical schools even though they will be above the 30 hours required for pre-med concentration within the major in Kinesiology & Health Sciences. Other specialties such as Dental, Veterinary, Physical Therapy, or Nutrition may require additional/different courses. It is essential for all premed students to consult with [[btsher, Dr. Beverly Sher]], Department of Biology for academic guidance. Dr. Sher's website.
Candidates declaring for the B.S. degree during Fall 2014 or after, must complete three additional courses in computer science, mathematics, biology, chemistry, geology or physics. This is in addition to satisfying the GER 1 and 2.
