This major is the department’s pre-medicine program and is an alternative to the traditional pre-medical programs. In addition to meeting the prerequisite requirements for medical school the sports medicine major provides a prevention-oriented curriculum with course options in nutrition, exercise physiology and exercise prescription. Students will be assigned a departmental academic advisor in addition to the health professions advisor who will guide their progress toward medical school or other medically-based professional school (e.g., dental school). An interdisciplinary approach including nutrition, biology, mathematics, chemistry, athletic training, and exercise science is included in the major. Students must have a minimum GPA of 2.5 for admission to the program.
