Kinesiology, Associate in Science for Transfer

PENDING APPROVAL

The Kinesiology for Transfer (AA-T) degree is designed for those students wishing to transfer to many CSU Kinesiology programs. Kinesiology is the study of the role of movement in the human body and how it works in sport activities. Programs in kinesiology are designed to prepare the student for jobs in teaching, coaching, fitness management, officiating, or a combination of these areas. Programs may have emphasis in sports, teaching, coaching, dance, pre-physical therapy, athletic training, sports medicine, recreation, or fitness management. Kinesiology programs are usually found at colleges and universities. They include bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degree programs. Students who plan to teach physical education in elementary, middle or secondary schools may need certification.
