Does your school offer sport classes for credit?

<p>A friend of mine is graduating next semester and he needed like one more credit for some reason. So he's taking a bowling class that's worth one credit and only meets for half of the semester.</p>

<p>Does you school offer anything like this? I suppose it's a good way to have students be active but it's kind of astonishing that they offer credit for it.</p>

<p>Yes, but at my school only 2 credits of PE can count towards the credits you need to graduate. I took a self-defense course taught by the campus police department for 2 credits and it was well worth it.</p>

<p>Ugh actually at my school an "activity" class is required - I find it annoying that I'm paying high amounts for it</p>

<p>I know some community colleges near my town offer credits for sports.</p>

<p>My school offers a kinesiology major, and some of the 100-level classes for that major involve ice skating, swimming, and some "gym class"-esque activities (basketball, badminton, etc.). Also in the dance department there are various classes available for non-major students to participate in.</p>

<p>It never seemed weird to me. But then again we also have random classes like floral decorating and the art of the Japanese Tea Ceremony. These and the sports classes are notoriously hard to get into though, since it's usually seniors that take up the spots.</p>

<p>My current university offers PE courses for academic credit but they appear to be much more popular among graduate students than undergraduates. Most graduate students need to be enrolled in exactly 10 credits per quarter: the minimum required for full-time status, yet the maximum covered by a standard graduate tuition waiver. Regular academic courses are worth 3 credits each. Adding a 1-credit PE or music performance class is the easiest way for us to maintain full-time status. </p>

<p>My undergraduate college did not give us academic credit for PE classes. BUT we were required to take 8 quarter's worth of PE classes (or varsity athletics) in order to graduate...</p>

<p>This. </p>

<p>I was going to take one, but then I realized I'd be paying $450 for a swimming class or something- no thank you.</p>

<p>Mine does. I'm planning to take one in my 3rd years when classes get harder to balance the work load.</p>

<p>My school offers scuba diving, archery, tree climbing, and some common sports activities.</p>

<p>My son's college allows two sports/fitness classes of one credit each to count towards a degree. Some classes (such as scuba diving) have an extra fee.</p>

<p>Yes- one credit dance classes, weight lifting, etc. I thought of taking yoga, but it's only offered early in the morning. I try to avoid mornings as much as possible while I still have the option to do so.</p>
