Advising Sheet

The 2020-21 Kinesiology Advising Sheet is a helpful tool for monitoring progress throughout the academic program. Mason Core requirements, details of coursework, and coursework sequencing necessary for completion of the KINE program are included. However, advising sheets are designed as supplemental guides and do not supersede the official degree requirements detailed in the corresponding year's George Mason University Catalog. The Academic Advising Sheet for each catalog year is available in Documents and Forms. Also available: Additional Advising Sheets for all CEHD programs in CEHD Documents and Forms

The diverse background and current applications of KINE faculty can help you to learn about numerous real-world settings, and about potential volunteer and career opportunities in the region and throughout the nation.
