The Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer degree provides students with the opportunity to meet the lower division requirements for transfer in the Kinesiology major.
This associate degree is designed to provide a clear pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree. California Community College students who are awarded an AA-T or AS-T degree are guaranteed admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system and given priority admission consideration to their local CSU campus or to a program that is deemed similar to their community college major. This priority does not guarantee admission to specific majors or campuses. Current and prospective community college students are encouraged to meet with a Counselor to develop an educational plan that best meets their goals and needs.
Students will have to fulfill the following requirements to earn this degree.
Completion of 60 semester or 90 quarter CSU-transferable units that include:
- A minimum of 25-27.5 semester units as required for the Associates in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer Degree, and
- The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) pattern of 37 units.
- Obtainment of a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 and earn a grade of “C” or better in all courses required for the major.
- IMPORTANT NOTE FOR STUDENTS: Under the Core Requirement Section Students are required to take 3 Movement-based Courses for a minimum of 3 units, choosing a maximum of 1 course from any 3 of the following areas: KAQUA, KCOMB, DANCE, KFIT, KINDV or KTEAM.
Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this major, the student will be able to:
- Demonstrate content knowledge in the Kinesiology core, career areas, human anatomy, and physiology, physiological response to exercise, and the mechanics and control of human movement.
- Explain breadth of occupational and educational pathways in Kinesiology.
- Demonstrate competency in and successful application of Kinesiology-related skills.
- Demonstrate the ability to think critically through the performance and evaluation of health, fitness, and movement assessment.
- Demonstrate professional and person growth, including advocacy for a healthy, active lifestyle.

Associate Degree Requirements:
The major is one of several requirements students need to fulfill in order to be awarded the Associate Degree, the highest level of academic achievement recognized by Santa Rosa Junior College. Please note that all of the following requirements must be met in order for the degree to be conferred:
For all students admitted for the Fall 2009 term or any term thereafter,
a grade of "C" or better, or "P" if the course is taken on a pass/no pass basis,
is required for each course applied toward the major.
It is important that students who are completing an Associate Degree and desire to transfer to a four-year institution meet with a counselor to plan their lower division coursework. While many majors at SRJC are intended to align with lower division major preparation required by California public universities, specific lower-division major requirements vary among individual campuses. See a counselor, visit the Transfer Center, and check Guides For Transfer in Specific Majors, and ASSIST to review transfer preparation guides for specific schools and majors.
