The faculty have designed the major with specific courses to prepare you for these fields after OWU. You will take 15 courses to complete this major. Your entry into the major is passed on your previous work in required classes. You will take courses in zoology, health and human kinetics, math, and psychology. This gives you a broad perspective on your major. In addition, you are required to maintain certification in adult and pediatric CPR.
