Kinesiology

Kinesiology is the study of the science and art of human movement.  The Kinesiology program is dedicated to the study of anatomy, physiology of movement, biomechanics and motor control, fitness and health, psychology of movement, injury and prevention, and career opportunities in Kinesiology.

The department of Kinesiology is a learning centered community that educates and inspires its students to understand and appreciate human movement throughout one’s lifespan.   The coursework in the field can improve students’ ability to think critically, manage stress, and value the human body as an integrated organism with systematic functions such as movement, nutrition, growth, reproduction and aging.  Coursework also promotes intellectual exploration, personal responsibility, personal safety and to value diverse cultures and populations, all contributing to personal and community wellness.

The diverse curricula in Kinesiology studies offers learning opportunities and skill development in professional preparation for future careers in allied health such as physical therapist, athletic training,   teaching and coaching, health and wellness, fitness specialist, personal training, group fitness, yoga and meditation teacher and aquatic specialist.  

Students have opportunities to earn an AA-T degree in Kinesiology and may choose to transfer to a California State University or a University of California in this discipline and program.  Students may also pursue an AS degree in Sports Medicine, developing important skills in many allied health settings.  There are numerous CTE certificates in health and fitness such as Fitness Specialist, Personal Training, and Yoga Teacher.  There are also noncredit CTE certificates in Advanced First Aid and Safety, Lifeguard Training, and Water Safety instructor increasing career related skills and knowledge for employment in the field of Kinesiology.  

The newest Associate of Science degree in Physical Therapy Assistant will be offered beginning summer 2023.  This will provide many job related skills and a strong knowledgeable foundation for a valuable career in the allied health settings.  This degree came to fruition with strong support from nearby Physical Therapy hospital and clinical facilities in our Coachella Valley.

Limitation on Enrollment by Courses Related in Content

Many Kinesiology courses have enrollment limitations. Active participatory courses that share a similar educational objective in Kinesiology are grouped together as a “family” of courses related in content. Students are allowed four enrollments within each “family”, but each course in the “family” is limited to one enrollment unless it has been designated as repeatable, per Title 5, Section 55040 (c), California Code of Regulations:

"The policies and procedures adopted by the governing board of each community college district pursuant to subdivision (a) may not permit student enrollment in active participatory courses, as defined in section 55000, in physical education/kinesiology, visual arts or performing arts that are related in content, more than four times for semester courses. This limitation applies even if a student receives a substandard grade or “W” during one or more of the enrollments in such a course or petitions for repetition due to extenuating circumstances as provided in section 55045."  The following groups of courses related in content were approved by the Curriculum Committee:
