HONOLULU — The Department of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Science in the University of Hawai‘i College of Education has been named an Education Recognition Program by the National Strength and Conditioning Association, UH reported last week.
The undergraduate program in the health and exercise science track met NSCA criteria, enabling students to become certified in strength and conditioning after they graduate with a bachelor of science degree from KRS.
“Being recognized as an ERP is a credit to the faculty in the department who teach in the Health and Exercise Science program,” KRS Chair Julienne Maeda said in a press release. “With this program of study being a foundation from which majors pursue several different pathways in health care and fitness, helping them pursue certification in strength and conditioning adds to the value of their degrees.”
With this three-year ERP recognition, both undergraduate programs of study in KRS have national recognition.
The Health and Physical Education program is recognized by NCATE and the National Association for Sport and Physical Education.
