Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology - Allied Health Professions Concentration

Requirements (94 units)

Total units required for graduation (180)

The concentration in Allied Health Professions (AHP) is for people 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 pre-requisite 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 programs. (Formerly PRE-PHYSICAL THERAPY)
