The mission of the Kinesiology Department is to promote the goal of health and total well-being to its students through the dissemination of knowledge primarily through one-hour activity courses related to physical fitness, lifetime sports and dance. Additionally, the department supports student and faculty in discipline-related service to the college, health and fitness fields, and the global community.
A degree from many senior colleges may require Kinesiology activity courses for graduation. A student should confer with the senior college of their choice about graduation requirements.
Effective Fall 2012, majors in Kinesiology will be able to earn an Associate’s Degree in Kinesiology. Degree plans are currently available and interested students should contact an advisor in the Kinesiology department. Transfer plans in Kinesiology with local universities are available as well.
Any two hours of Kinesiology courses are required for an Associate’s degree awarded at San Antonio College for degree plans prior to 2012-2013. Exceptions are for students with more than two years of military service and those certified by a physician as physically unable to participate.
The Kinesiology Department offers:
- Activity courses in relation to physical fitness and lifetime sports.
- Activity courses to meet the requirements for an Associate’s Degree.
- Theory courses for a major or minor in health or kinesiology.
