Coolest Kinesiology Classes To Fulfill Your GHA Credits

We’ve all been there. It’s the night before you schedule for next semester and you’re scouring LionPATH looking for an easy class to fulfill those general education requirements. When it comes to finding an easy course to get those GHA credits, kinesiology classes are the way to go.

That said, some are harder than others. Here are some of the best KINES classes to keep in mind when registration rolls around:

KINES 12: Snowboarding — You get credit to snowboard at Tussey Mountain. If you snowboard or even want to learn, this should be fun way to an easy A.

KINES 11: Downhill Skiing — Would you rather ski than snowboard? There’s a class for that.

KINES 17: Ballroom Dance — If you frequent the IM Building, you’ve probably seen this class in one of the gyms. You get to learn dances like the Waltz, Polka, Cha-Cha, and Tango. You’ll really be a hit at weddings.

KINES 72: Fitness Walking — You walk around campus…it doesn’t get much easier than that.

KINES 65: Jogging — It’s like Kines 72, but jogging instead of walking. If you’ve always wanted to run a 5k, this class might be the one for you.

KINES 90A-C: Intro To Team Sports (Indoor) — If you like playing pickup games, here’s a chance to get some credit and try a new sport. Different sections of the course include basketball (90B), volleyball (90A), and handball (90C).

KINES 91A-D: Intro to Team Sports (Outdoor) — It’s just like Kines 90, but with outdoor sports. If you like to play (or want to learn) Soccer (91A), Rugby (91C), or Ultimate Frisbee (91D), this class should be a breeze.

KINES 29: Golf — You like to hit the links on the weekends, so why not play a few holes during the school day? This course features weekly practice on Penn State’s golf course.

KINES 77: Yoga — Classes got you stressed? Take a class like yoga to help calm your nerves.

KINES 25: Intro To Court Sports — You spend the semester learning and playing tennis, racquetball, handball, squash, and badminton. How hard could it be?

These classes naturally fill up fast and are mainly filled by seniors, so you may have to wait a few semesters to get into one. Can’t decide between two? You’re in luck — most of these choices are only a credit and a half, so you need to take two to reach that three credit requirement anyway. Maybe this is why Penn State is ranked the most active college campus.
