Department of Human Studies

Chair: Kristi Menear

The Department of Human Studies offers undergraduate majors in both Community Health and Human Services and Kinesiology. Community Health and Human Services majors choose between two concentrations: Community Health (non-teaching) or Human Services (non-teaching).  Community Health and Human Services also offers a minor in Community Health and a Minor in Human Services. Kinesiology majors choose among three concentrations: Physical Education Teacher Certification (grades P-12), Fitness Leadership (non-teaching), or Exercise Science (non-teaching).  Kinesiology also offers a minor in Athletic Coaching and a minor in Exercise Science. 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).

The Department of Human Studies offers an Honors Program for Exercise Science and Fitness Leadership students. Highly qualified students will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with a mentor in an area of mutual interest and conduct either a research or civic engagement project designed to meet some particular need as it relates to pertinent areas of fitness, exercise, and physical activity. For more information go to: http://www.uab.edu/education/studentservices/current-students/get-involved/honors-program.
