Change a degree-major-concentration of an existing program                       
Bachelor of Science in Health - Health Science Major Exercise Science Concentration


Summary of the Changes:
The Exercise Science program is requesting program changes which will increase the Major Requirements from 51 credits to 53 credits and reduce the Free Elective credits from 9 credits to 7 credits. The overall program credit requirement of 60 credits will not change.
The changes include adding three courses, deleting one course from the program and changing credit hours on two courses:
1. Add HSC 4XXX Advanced Exercise Physiology for Health Sciences (3 Credits)
2. Add APK4XXX Exercise Prescription (3 credits)
3. Add APK 4XXX Exercise Physiology Practice (3 Credits)
4. Remove APK 3115C Practical Skills in Strength and Conditioning (3 credits) from the program
5. Change HSC 4615L Lab Methods in Exercise Physiology for Health Science (3 credits) to 1 credit
6. Change PET 4550L Physical Fitness Assessment (3 credits) to 1 Credit
These changes are based on recommendations made by the external site visit team during a recent program accreditation visit.

Terminate a degree-major of an existing program
Bachelor of Science - Radiography Major

Summary of the Changes:
The B.S. in Radiography required approval by SACSCOC. During the SACSCOC review a few issues were raised that were insurmountable. As a result, UNF has decided to not pursue the B.S. in Radiography further with SACSCOC and requests the program be terminated.
