Kinesiology/Athletics

Career Options & Highlights

The kinesiology, athletics, and dance curriculum offers a wide variety of courses to accommodate varying fitness levels, interests, and abilities including: jazz dance, hip hop, cardiovascular training, strength training, martial arts, mind/body courses like yoga and tai chi, individual sport activities such as archery and tennis, intercollegiate athletics, and lecture courses for aspiring fitness professionals and transfer students. Students will not only learn how to perform activities with proper technique, but they will learn principles of exercise science and biomechanics which can be applied to their training. Students should carefully read the course description to determine if it will meet their needs. Many of the courses transfer to both the CSU and UC systems and meet requirements for the degree and certificate programs. However, some 4-year colleges and universities limit the number of units they will accept toward the baccalaureate degree. For specific requirements, students should refer to a catalog from the transfer institution of their choice. Students are also advised to see a counselor before selecting the courses best aligned with their transfer institution.
