Kinesiology (AA-T)

Kinesiology Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) 

Program Description

Kinesiology is the study of movement as it relates to physical activity, health, disease prevention, exercise, and sport. Kinesiology Majors are grounded in an interdisciplinary body of knowledge which encompasses the biological, psychological, physical, and social sciences. They use this knowledge to understand how the human body responds to movement, exercise, exercise training, and overall fitness. Kinesiology majors can find employment in health care, coaching, sports officiating, and athletic training. Public schools also recruit kinesiologists for their physical education departments or programs. Lastly, a baccalaureate degree in Kinesiology can also lead to advanced degrees in Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, or Medical School.

The Associate in Arts Degree in Kinesiology for Transfer degree will be awarded upon completion of course work totaling 60 California State University (CSU) transferable units including the above major requirements and the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC for CSU) or California State University General Education (CSU GE) requirements with a minimum grade point average of 2.0.

All courses in the major must be completed with a grade of “C” or better. (Students completing this degree are not required to fulfill additional PCC graduation requirements.)
