Exercise Science Concentration Four Year Plan

Exercise Science/pre-PT advisor: Dr. Bulent Sokmen (sokmen@sonoma.edu)

The Four Year Plan is a sample study plan. The sequence and specific courses given are suggestive. Please see an advisor each semester to plan your academic program and track your progress using the Academic Requirements Report (ARR) in MYSSU.

Courses may be interchanged fall and spring semester depending on course offering each semester.

Transfer Students: To be eligible to transfer into kinesiology, complete BIOL 220 (Human Anatomy) or BIOL 224 (Human Physiology) and have the other course in progress at the time of application. We also recommend using assist.org to find and complete a course that articulates with KIN 201, Foundations of Kinesiology.
