The Department of Kinesiology, Health Promotion and Recreation offers a grad track option for existing UNT undergraduate students majoring in kinesiology. In this grad track option, the student can take a maximum of twelve (12) hours of graduate courses while completing the BS degree. These credits will be counted toward both the BS and MS degrees. Prior to registering for these courses, the student must be admitted to the grad track option and obtain approvals from the undergraduate and graduate coordinators.

Admission requirements and program policies


Admission requirements


Students must earn a 3.5 or higher GPA on all undergraduate work and have completed 75 hours, including BIOL 2301 /BIOL 2311  and BIOL 2302 /BIOL 2312 , KINE 3050 , as well as the pre-theory core in Kinesiology (PHED 1000 , KINE 2030  and KINE 2050 ) with a 3.0 overall in those pre-theory core classes in order to be admitted to this program.

A student who fails to maintain the 3.5 GPA will not be allowed to enroll in the master’s level courses.

Students who are applying for the Grad Track Pathway in kinesiology are not required to take the GRE.

Students are required to submit a candidate statement. The candidate statement is an essay in which students describe their interest in enrolling in the Grad Track Pathway in kinesiology. The statement must include reasons for applying to this program, academic goals, career goals, research interests, etc.

Program policies


Students’ applications to the Grad Track Pathway in kinesiology will be reviewed by the kinesiology undergraduate and graduate program coordinators, and students will be admitted only when approved by both program coordinators. 

Students’ progress will be monitored by both undergraduate and graduate kinesiology program coordinators (before completing the BS degree) and the graduate program coordinator in kinesiology (after completing the BS degree).

Students will be considered undergraduate students until all undergraduate requirements have been met and the bachelor’s degree has been posted to the student’s transcript. Students will not be eligible for teaching and research assistantships, or related health insurance, financial aid or graduate awards, until the undergraduate degree is completed.

Undergraduate students who have been accepted to the Grad Track option should complete all bachelor’s degree requirements and graduate within 12 months of the first day of the semester for which they start taking graduate courses or enrollment in graduate level course work will be suspended.
