The Department of Kinesiology and Health Education (KHE) offers a minor that gives undergraduate students from outside the Kinesiology and Health Education major the opportunity to take courses in health behavior, human movement, physical culture, sport and much more.

A transcript-recognized minor in KHE requires 15 hours of coursework in KIN and HED with a minimum of 6 upper-division hours. Prerequisites for classes must be met and some classes have limited spaces available.

A minor in Kinesiology and Health Education can complement studies in nutrition, business, communication, natural sciences, pre-med, social work and education.
