Physical Education provides the opportunity for individuals and groups to learn skills, develop total fitness, and participate in activities that provide carry-over interests, physiological results, and wholesome social interchange. Lower division curricula for majors is dependent upon California university and out-of-state university requirements.

Kinesiology for Transfer

AA-T Degree

Kinesiology involves the study of physical activity and its impact on health, society, and quality of life. Students will create a balance between physical fitness, social well-being, health, and academic success; distinguish principles of healthy weight management through exercise and nutrition; identify and practice the fundamental concepts of wellness and fitness; demonstrate essential motor skill patterns to fit a variety of activities, and identify and practice high safety standards, support environmental needs, and provide a positive experience for participants.

The Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer degree (AA-T) prepares students to transfer into the CSU system to complete a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology, Physical Education, or a major deemed similar by a CSU campus. Students earning an associate degree for transfer and meeting the CSU minimum transfer admission requirements are guaranteed admission with junior standing within the CSU system. Students are also given priority admission consideration to their local CSU campus but not to a particular campus or major. Upon transfer, students will be required to complete no more than 60 additional prescribed units to earn a bachelor’s degree.

To earn the Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer degree, students must complete 60 CSU-transferable semester units with a minimum grade point average of 2.0, including both of the following:

  • completion of all courses required for the major with grades of “C” or better; and
  • completion of the California State University General Education Breadth (CSU GE) pattern or the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) pattern.

It is highly recommended that, prior to transferring, students complete courses that satisfy the CSU United States History, Constitution and American Ideals graduation requirement. In all cases, students should consult with a counselor for more information on university admission and transfer requirements.

Physical Education

The program in Physical Education outlined below is typical of lower-division requirements for four-year colleges and universities; some requirements vary from college to college.
