Highly-qualified undergraduates may be admitted to the bachelor's/accelerated master's program and obtain a BS or BA in any degree area and an MS in Kinesiology in an accelerated time-frame after satisfactory completion of a minimum of 144 credits. Students in an accelerated degree program must fulfill all university requirements for the master's degree.
