Department of Human Studies

Chair: Kristi Menear

The Department of Human Studies offers undergraduate majors in both Health Education and Kinesiology (formerly Physical Education). Health Education majors choose between two concentrations: Community Health (non-teaching) or Human Services (non-teaching).  Kinesiology majors choose among three concentrations: Physical Education Teacher Certification (grades P-12), Fitness Leadership (non-teaching), or Exercise Science (non-teaching).  Programs leading to degrees and/or certificates in Counseling and Educational Leadership are offered at the graduate level.

Students should contact the Office of Student Services, Suite 232, Education Building, (205) 934-7530, early in their studies to obtain the name of their advisor and pertinent program information related to the Core Curriculum.  Students should consult their advisor prior to each registration period for the appropriate guidance (e.g., students are expected to take courses in the appropriate sequence, including prerequisites).

Kinesiology Programs

Students majoring in Kinesiology may choose from three concentrations: teacher certification, exercise science, and fitness leadership. The teacher certification program prepares students for entry into teaching positions in grades P-12. The exercise science program prepares students for graduate work in exercise physiology or health related careers such as physical therapy and occupational therapy. The fitness leadership program prepares students to be fitness leaders in fitness centers, clinics, or industrial settings.

Kinesiology Major: Teacher Certification Concentration

A grade of "C" or better is required in all math, science, and major courses.
