The B.S. in Kinesiology & Health Sciences with a concentration in Premed:

This concentration is appropriate for further study in medicine.

Students receiving a concentration in Premed must pass the following required courses:

  • 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 (COLL 200, NQR)(GER1) (or any introductory statistics course but credits for such courses will not count towards the 34 credits needed in the department)
  • KINE 450 Cardiovascular Physiology
  • One writing course in the major

A minimum of 30 credits from the course list in Kinesiology & Health Sciences must be completed for the premed concentration. In addition, the following courses are recommended for the Kinesiology & Health Sciences Premed concentration:  

  • BIOL 220 Introduction to Organisms, Ecology, Evolution
  • BIOL 221 Introduction to Organisms, Ecology, Evolution Lab
  • BIOL 225 Introduction to Molecules, Cells, Development
  • BIOL 226 Introduction to Molecules, Cells, Development Lab
  • CHEM 103 General Chemistry I
  • CHEM 103L General Chemistry I Lab
  • CHEM 206 Organic Chemistry I
  • CHEM 206L Organic Chemistry I Lab
  • CHEM 307 Organic Chemistry II for Life Sciences
  • CHEM 353 Organic Chemistry Lab II
  • CHEM 308 General Chemistry II for Life Sciences
  • CHEM 354 General Chemistry Lab II
  • PHYS 101 General Physics I 
  • PHYS 101L General Physics I Lab
  • PHYS 102 General Physics II
  • PHYS 102L General Physics II Lab


  • PHYS 107 Physics for the Life Sciences I
  • PHYS 107L Physics for the Life Sciences I Lab
  • PHYS 108 Physics for the Life Sciences II
  • PHYS 108L Physics for the Life Sciences II Lab

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.

Not all courses are available every semester. Please check the course schedule for the most updated listing of courses.
