Program Type: AA Degree

Division: C & I Committee Member - Non-Faculty

Program Description:
Responsible Divisions: Kinesiology, Health and Athletics, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Counseling, Health Sciences

The area of emphasis in Kinesiology and Wellness provides for a student with an understanding of physical education, health promotion, and the mechanics of human bodily movement. The word kinesiology comes from the Greek, kinesis, which means to move. Kinesiology is the study of the art and science of human movement. The discipline of Kinesiology is dedicated to the study of human movement as it relates to sport, dance, and exercise. This area of emphasis is intended to align student course work with preparation for transfer to universities in such bachelor degree majors as Kinesiology, Exercise Science, Physical Education, and other similar fields of study. Kinesiology and Wellness is designed for the student preparing, in the long run, to become a physical education teacher, to study a health-related profession, or to pursue a career in other related fields that typically require a bachelorís degree.

PLEASE NOTE: The courses that universities and colleges require for transfer vary. When selecting courses for transfer purposes, students should consult with Counseling Services to determine the particular transfer requirements of specific transfer institutions.
