UTT introduces accelerated health program

The University of Texas at Tyler (UTT) Department of Health and Kinesiology is offering a new accelerated degree program to commence in the autumn of 2011. Provost and Executive Vice-President for Academics Dr. Peter J. Fos announced the course. The program allows select kinesiology students to take just five years to earn both graduate and undergraduate degrees. To be eligible students must be enrolled in the department’s Accelerated Bachelor to Master’s Degree Program, and have completed courses with a GPA of at least 3.0. They next must complete kinesiology core courses with a GPA of at least 3.5. This is the first such program in this field. Department of Health and Kinesiology Chair Dr. Scott Marzilli is upbeat on the program’s potential. “This opportunity is awesome,” he said. “Following the completion of the kinesiology core, students would begin taking 15 hours of graduate course work. Upon completion of their bachelor’s degree they would only have 21 hours of graduate courses to complete their master’s degree.” The program is meant to prepare students for various careers in exercise, physical education, coaching or sports. It also establishes a foundation for later doctoral studies in exercise science, physical education medicine online without and/or kinesiology. For more information or to apply for the course, call (903) 566-7031.
