Advising

Kinesiology students do not have an assigned advisor, rather the advisors work as a team to serve the students.  Some students choose to meet with the same advisor every time and some choose the advisor based on which meeting time works for their schedule. Either way works! 

We strongly encourage students meet with an advisor regularly to discuss course requirements, benchmarks, academic plans, internships, schedules, and career planning. All first-year students, transfer students, student-athletes, and students on probation have mandatory advising; if you fall into one of these categories please be aware there are specific advisors you will need to meet. 

Student handbooks are available for the B.S. Degree in Kinesiology for the General Education program.

See suggested 4-year plans here: https://sph.umd.edu/content/four-year-plans

See this document about career destinations in relation to the B.S. in Kinesiology - consider this as ways to inform your path and option/elective courses through the major.
