Kinesiology Transfer Program of Study

As a Kinesiology major, understanding your options is important.  Common tracks are pre-physical therapy, physical education, athletic training, and exercise science. Kinesiology is an applied learning major and is primarily offered through the CSU system.   CSU schools require the completion of 60 transferable units that include English 1A, a critical thinking course, and an oral communication class.

Working with a counselor is the best way to map out a transfer plan.  We highly recommend that you make an appointment with a counselor to develop an education plan that meets your needs.

The courses listed below are commonly required major preparation classes for this major at 4-year transfer institutions.  This is not a degree, but a list of preparation course options for transfer. Required classes can vary, please visit the Assist website for specific CSU and UC major prep classes.
