The curriculum in the Kinesiology Associate Degree program is designed to provide the transfer student the opportunity to achieve an Associate degree. Kinesiology provides a critical element in a comprehensive, well-balanced educational program. The learning opportunities offered in this area can be an essential factor to the optimum development of a student in all areas of life; physical, mental, emotional, and social. Kinesiology courses contribute significantly toward the achievement of desirable educational outcomes, such as transfer to four-year colleges and universities into majors such as Kinesiology with an Option in Fitness at CSU Long Beach, and prepares students for successful outcomes through the means of physical activity and related experiences. While a baccalaureate or higher degree is recommended for those considering majors related to this field, earning the Associate degree may support attempts to gain entry-level employment or promotion.
