Transcript

  1. Feasibility of Kinesiology Requirement at MSU Results <ul><li>Presented to the Administrative Council of MSU </li></ul><ul><li>By: Stephanie Genest </li></ul>
  2. Introduction <ul><li>With approval from the Administrative Council, I have been able to conduct extensive research on the subject of the Kinesiology requirement at MSU. This was done in an effort to stimulate discussion between the Board of Regents and Dean Jesse Rogers to change the current required curriculum. With the information I will present in these slides, changes will soon be made. </li></ul>
  3. I would like to start out by sharing with you the number of responses the following information is based on. Out of over 5,000 students attending MSU, 3,560 responded to the survey.
  4. The survey had nine questions. Out of those nine, the questions that received the most response were: <ul><li>Do you feel the Physical Education requirement should be eliminated from MSU’s curriculum? </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>89% of the student body answered YES to this question. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  5. <ul><li>Will the skills you learn in Physical Education courses have an effect on your future career? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>72% of students answered NO to this question </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Would you be willing to take an extra interdisciplinary course of your choosing if the Physical Education requirement was dropped? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>85% of students answered YES to this question </li></ul></ul>
  6. Further Research <ul><li>For a student to fulfill his/her Kinesiology requirement, he/she must take two semesters of either activity or lecture courses (some degree plans require two activity courses though). Kinesiology activity courses are only worth two hours each. This fact may pose additional problems for a student, depending on the conditions of his/her financial aid. </li></ul>
  7. Costs <ul><li>To take two semesters of Kinesiology activity courses, worth two hours each, the student pays $830.90 plus an additional $60 in Kinesiology fees. </li></ul><ul><li>If the requirement were to change, and a student instead took an extra course in their interdisciplinary field, the student would be paying $735.55 plus an estimated $15 in course fees. </li></ul>
  8. Conclusions <ul><li>With the information I have presented, it is easy to understand how students are feeling on this issue. It is apparent that students care more about taking courses that pertain to their careers in the future. </li></ul>
  9. <ul><li>Understandably, it is logical to think of the $135 in tuition money MSU will lose from each student with the removal of the Kinesiology requirement. Taking that fact into consideration, there are plenty of options that may be available: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Require more than one Interdisciplinary Course </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Require one Interdisciplinary course and only one Kinesiology course </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Make course fees higher </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul> Conclusions
  10. <ul><li>As a final word, I would like to thank you for allowing me to present this information to you today. I hope it provided evidence of how we as students feel about MSU’s core curriculum. Feedback would be appreciated, and hopefully this presentation will provoke further discussion on the topic among the MSU Board of Regents. </li></ul>
