KINESIOLOGY FOR TRANSFER

The Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer Degree provides students with the knowledge and application of kinesiology concepts and skills to attain upper division status in kinesiology at most four-year colleges or universities. The program emphasizes fundamental knowledge in the biological, psychological, and socio-cultural foundations and consequences of physical mechanics; and the pedagogical and rehabilitative aspects of physical activity.

Program Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of this program, the student will have the skills necessary to be successful in upper division courses at the university. The student will be able to demonstrate critical thinking skills necessary to understand and analyze knowledge specific to kinesiology; exhibit knowledge of the skeletal and neuromuscular structures of the human body; demonstrate oral and written communication that meets appropriate professional and scientific standards in kinesiology; perform basic motor skills and apply a variety of concepts, theories, and methods common to kinesiology to bridge the gap between theory and practice; and apply and access universal risk management tools used to promote safe practices in physical activity.

The Kinesiology AA-T degree requires completion of the major and the CSU General Education (40 units) or IGETC (37-39 units) requirements.
All courses used to satisfy the major for the Associate in Arts degree must be completed with a grade of "C" or better.
