Prerequisites and Co-requisites

ES 255 and HED 158 have no prerequisite requirements. They may be taken at any time during the program. ES 255 and HED 158 are offered Fall and Spring Semesters.

ES 291 and 292 have no prerequisites, but are CO-REQUISITES; meaning that they SHOULD be taken together to get the most benefit.

ES 291 and 292 are PREREQUISITES for 293 and 294, so you need to take Exercise Physiology, Anatomy and Kinesiology in the Fall before ES 293 and 294 in the Spring.
