Associate in Arts Degree for Transfer

The Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer (AA-T) is intended for all students who plan to complete an Associate in Arts in Kinesiology. This degree is especially valuable for those students planning on completing a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology at a CSU campus because the Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer guarantees admission to the CSU system (but not to a particular campus or major).

Students transferring to a CSU campus that does accept the Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor’s degree (unless the major is a designated “high-unit” major).

This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to university or college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult with a counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements. This degree eliminates the additional Bakersfield College graduation requirements.

Requirements for AA-T or AS-T degrees:

The completion of 60 semester units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following:

  • The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University – Breadth Requirements.
  • A minimum of 18 semester units in a major area of emphasis, as determined by the district.
  • The obtainment of a minimum grade point average of 2.0.
  • The completion of all courses required for the major with a ‘C’ or better. A ‘P’ (Pass) grade is not acceptable for courses in the major.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, the student will:

  • analyze the history, research, and current information in Kinesiology and their current applications.
  • demonstrate and explain the basic anatomy and physiological principles at work in both sport performance and general fitness activities.
  • demonstrate an understanding of the value and significance of physical activity for human development, human interactions and quality of life.
  • demonstrate and describe the primary aspects of injury and trauma response as a first responder.
  • recognize the principles of physical fitness development and maintenance as well as the body’s responses to physical activity.
