Advisor: Joohyun Lee
Degree: Bachelor of Arts
Semester Hours: 42
Admission Requirements: 
To graduate with a departmental major, students must first earn admission to the department. This typically occurs during the spring semester of the second year, and late-entry transfer students apply for admission after their first semester at EMU. Students must have department admission to apply for an internship and several upper-level courses. Students seek admission to the department by completing an application and an interview with their advisor; they must meet the GPA requirement of 2.00 overall and 2.50 for major courses taken at EMU. Students must maintain these GPA standards to retain admission and to graduate from the department.

Many courses in the department have prerequisites; this requirement is met by earning a letter grade of C or higher on the prerequisite course before enrolling in subsequent courses (a grade of C- does not meet this requirement).

This program prepares students for entry-level positions in a variety of fitness related careers, including commercial, municipal, corporate, or campus recreation, strength and conditioning coach or trainer, sports club management, athletic administration, sports promotion and marketing, and arena/stadium management.
