20-23 credit hours required.
The Fitness Minor will provide students with an understanding of the role of behaviors (including diet and physical activity) in human health, as well as an in-depth examination of fitness.
A minimum of 20 hours of credit is required of all students seeking a Fitness minor. Students must earn at least a 2.0 in each course to receive credit for the minor. This minor is open to all students regardless of major. Students may use (i.e., "double count") only two courses to fulfill requirements for both the minor and their major.
