The Kinesiology major consists of courses appropriate for an Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer degree, which provides a foundational understanding of the discipline, a breadth of coursework in the discipline, and preparation for transfer to any CSU that accepts the AA-T. Students who complete the Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer degree receive priority admission to the California State University system, though admission to a specific campus is not guaranteed.
