The Undergraduate Core

In 2009 the AKA sponsored a national workshop that examined the core curriculum in Kinesiology (see Dr. Bob Christina’s summary). There was broad agreement that there is a need to achieve consensus concerning the essential elements of the undergraduate core in Kinesiology. In essence, we need to agree on what it is that every undergraduate Kinesiology major should know or be able to do.

In the sections below you will find a statement explaining the development of the Core Curriculum in Kinesiology by the AKA, specifics of the Undergraduate Core Elements, learning outcomes and advice on developing a core curriculum at your institution. We have also included core curriculum and learning outcome examples from other institutions, as well as blank forms to assist in development of your programs.
