Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees, Certificates, and Awards in Alphabetical Order

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 with junior status to the California State University system, though admission to a specific campus is not guaranteed. While an associate degree may support attempts to gain entry-level employment or promotion, a baccalaureate or higher degree is recommended for those considering professional careers, which can be achieved through transfer.

Please refer to Graduation Requirements  for more information on transfer degree requirements
