The Department of Kinesiology and Athletics provides opportunities for students to develop proficiency in a variety of sports and activities, academically study the field of kinesiology and health education, pursue a professional career in teaching, coaching, sports psychology, working with a college or professional sports team, working for a corporate or individual health facility, athletic administration, athletic training, sports medicine aid, physical therapists, or personal/fitness trainer; and transfer to a four year college/university.

An Associate of Arts Degree, with four choices of area of emphasis - Education, Sports Management, Sports Medicine, or Personal Training/Fitness - can be obtained by completing a total of 60 units, which includes the 18 - 21 units major in Kinesiology, general education requirements, and electives.  This program, along with the AA-T in Kinesiology, is also designed to allow students to transfer into baccalaureate programs in kinesiology/physical education at CSU and many independent and/or out-of-state colleges and universities.  The department also provides an 18 unit certificate of achievement in personal training.  

Students should note that each college and university has its own admission, general education, and lower-division major requirements that must be completed prior to transfer, and that these requirements vary greatly from institution to institution. Students have several options for completing their General  Education requirements. Following are the patterns most commonly used by Gavilan College transfer  students: California State University’s (CSUs) General Education Requirements for a B.A./B.S.,  Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC), and Transfer Admission  Agreements. Students should consult with a Gavilan College counselor to determine which general education pattern is appropriate for their major in Kinesiology.

Gavilan College offers a variety of intercollegiate sports for men and women.  We compete in the Coast Conference which is a member of the California Community College Athletic Association.  Students participate for a variety of reasons, including the desire to compete at the intercollegiate level and for the opportunity to earn an academic or athletic scholarship at the 4-year level.

Whether students are majoring in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Education, Sports Management, Sports Medicine, or Personal Training/Fitness; wanting to meet their transfer requirements by utilizing our Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer degree; pursuing a Certificate of Achievement in Personal Training; desiring a  competitive intercollegiate athletic experience; fulfilling the general education kinesiology activity class graduation requirement; or just wanting enrichment opportunities, the staff remains dedicated to providing the best instruction possible.
