Associate in Arts for Transfer Degree
Kinesiology

The Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer is designed to provide students preparing to transfer with the foundation to complete a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology. Students will be able to pursue careers in teaching, coaching, physical therapy, athletic training, and adaptive physical education.

The Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer (AA-T) Degree is intended to meet the lower division requirements for Kinesiology majors (or similar majors) at a CSU campus that offers a Kinesiology baccalaureate degree.

This degree is designed for the transfer-oriented student who seeks to explore Kinesiology in preparation for a Bachelor’s degree. Students will gain information and experience in areas that will prepare them for a job or a career in the field of teaching, youth or professional sports, coaching, fitness and health industry, physical therapy, athletic training, sports management, and lifesaving skills in First Aid and C.P.R. The degree will provide students the opportunity to pursue work in: youth sports and summer camps, in the fitness industry, assisting physical education professionals and creating new business opportunities in the area of physical activity and sports.

Please contact the Student Success Team for this program if you have any questions.

Human Physiology provides a general introduction to the function and regulation of human body systems. Physiological integration of the systems to maintain homeostasis and the significance of biochemistry is emphasized throughout the course. Course content will include neural and hormonal homeostatic control mechanisms, and a study of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, urinary, immune and endocrine systems. Laboratory exercises will allow students to gather physiological data and draw conclusions on how physiological mechanisms are regulated. This course is intended for students preparing to enter careers in the health sciences.
