Kinesiology Undergraduate Program Information

B.S. IN KINESIOLOGY – ALLIED HEALTH PROFESSIONS (FORMERLY PRE-PHYSICAL THERAPY)


The concentration in Allied Health Professions (AHP) is for students interested in eventual graduate education in allied health professions (viz., physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician’s assistant, medical or dental school) after graduation from CSUSB. CSUSB Kinesiology AHP students will engage in a rigorous course of study in Kinesiology, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. This concentration offers undergraduate students essential prerequisite courses for eventual graduate study in a preferred AHP. Students are strongly encouraged to review admission requirements at accredited universities to which they may apply for specific allied health professions graduate program.

(Formerly PRE-PHYSICAL THERAPY)

For admission to the AHP concentration a student majoring in Kinesiology must:

    1. Earn a minimum of 3.2 cumulative GPA for all college/university coursework;
    2. Complete the following courses
      1. BIOL 223. Human Anatomy and Physiology I
      2. BIOL 224. Human Anatomy and Physiology II
