Kinesiology

The Kinesiology program will stimulate learning and necessary skills for the different options of study in the practical field of kinesiology. After completion of the Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer, also called Kinesiology AA-T Degree, the students’ knowledge will be diverse in topics such as health and fitness, sports management, personal training, pedagogy, motor development and learning, physiology of exercise, athletic training, and pre-physical therapy. Students who complete the Kinesiology AA-T will receive "priority admission with junior status to the California State University system."

This degree requires students to complete 60 CSU transferable units including completion of CSU GE or IGETC and 21-23 units in the major with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. Title 5 requires that students earn a grade of “C” or better in all major coursework. There are no additional graduation requirements. Students should consult with a counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements.
