Career Information

The AA-T in Kinesiology can provide students with the foundational knowledge necessary for transfer to a 4-year Bachelor of Science (BS) or Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree program. Career opportunities for students who have earned BS or BA degrees in Kinesiology include but are not limited to: exercise physiologist, physical therapy aide, health consultant, personal trainer, recreation director, referee, group fitness instructor, health club manager, athletic coach, activities director, K-12 physical educator, public health educator, swimming pool manager, cardiac rehabilitation technician, or corporate fitness director. Some careers may require additional training. NOTE TO TRANSFER STUDENTS: The Associate Degree for Transfer program is designed for students who plan to transfer to a campus of the California State University (CSU). Other than the required core, the courses you choose to complete this degree will depend to some extent on the selected CSU for transfer. In addition, some CSU-GE Breadth or IGETC requirements can also be completed using courses required for this associate degree for transfer major (known as “double-counting”). Meeting with a counselor to determine the most appropriate course choices will facilitate efficient completion of your transfer requirements. For students wishing to transfer to other universities (UC System, private, or out-of-state), the Associate Degree for Transfer may not provide adequate preparation for upper-division transfer admissions; it is critical that you meet with a CRC counselor to select and plan the courses for the major, as programs vary widely in terms of the required preparation.

Associate Degrees

A.A. in Physical Education

The Cosumnes River College Physical Education program offers a wide variety of physical education classes, including Fitness, Dance, Aquatics, Self Defense, Individual Sports, Team Sports, Intercollegiate Athletics, and Physical Education Theory classes. The program in Physical Education outlined below is typical of lower-division requirements for four-year colleges and universities (though some requirements tend to vary from college to college). For specific requirements, students should refer to a catalog of the college of their choice. Students are also advised to see a counselor before selecting the courses best aligned with their transfer institution. Note to Transfer Students: If you are interested in transferring to a four-year college or university to pursue a bachelor’s degree in this major, it is critical that you meet with a CRC counselor to select and plan the courses for your major. Schools vary widely in terms of the required preparation. The courses that CRC requires for an Associate’s degree in this major may be different from the requirements needed for the Bachelor’s degree. Highlights include: * A wide variety of physical education options * Outstanding facilities that include a state of the art fitness center, competitive aquatic facilities, baseball stadium, state of the art community and athletic center, second gymnasium, soccer/football stadium * 2 FIFA sized soccer fields with scoreboards, softball stadium, 8 championship tennis courts and numerous physical education fields. Physical Education NOTE: The University of California has a limitation on the number of units of physical education courses that can be transferred. The California State University System has no such limitation, but there are restrictions placed on the number of physical education units that can be applied toward the major and general education. See a counselor for specific course limitations. All activity classes are open to both men and women unless noted within the course title. Students may be concurrently enrolled in more than one physical education activity class; however, no more than two of the same physical education activity classes may be taken by a student in the same semester. The prefixes ADAPT, DANCE, FITNESS, PACT, TMACT, and SPORT refer to courses which may be used to satisfy the physical education graduation requirement. Beginning classes concentrate on fundamental skills, rules, scoring, equipment, dress, etiquette and basic strategy. Intermediate classes continue efforts on skill development while concentrating on strategy and competitive play. Activity courses may be taken up to four times in each activity area, unless otherwise identified (e.g. four Tennis, four Aerobics, four Weight Training, etc.). Courses with the "PET" prefix are open to students interested in the physical education major and in the theoretical aspects of sports activity. PET courses do not meet the physical education graduation requirement; however, they are all transferable. Some "PET" courses have a unit limitation to the UC system. See a counselor for specific course limitations. Athletics Academic Advising for Athletes 10 intercollegiate athletic opportunities for student participation: * For Men: Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, Tennis * For Women: Basketball, Soccer, Softball, Tennis, Volleyball, Water Polo Cosumnes River College is a member of the Bay Valley Conference which includes community colleges located in the San Francisco Bay Area and the interior valleys of Northern California. The Bay Valley Conference is a member of the Community College League of California - Commission on Athletics (COA) and adheres to all rules and regulations governing community college athletics within the State of California. In order to participate in intercollegiate athletics, both men and women must fulfill the requirements of the Los Rios Community College District and the Athletic Constitution of the Commission on Athletics. These requirements are very exacting and the athletes are advised to become thoroughly familiar with them in order to avoid eligibility problems. The athletic director is familiar with the eligibility requirements and would be available to answer specific questions. Students who have not competed in intercollegiate athletics are deemed scholastically eligible for their first season of competition. In order to maintain eligibility, an athlete must participate in Cosumnes River College's Athletic Academic Advising. This Academic Advising Program requires athletes to: * Meet with an athletic academic counselor annually and complete a Student Educational Plan (SEP). * Maintain at least a 2.0 cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA), attend classes regularly and complete all assigned course work. * Successfully complete 24 units between the first and second season of participation in a specific sport, of which 18 units must be in General Education or degree specific classes. * Maintain active enrollment in a minimum of 12 units during the semester of competition. Nine of these 12 units must be General Education or degree specific. Field Study Classes at Cosumnes River College: Nature is often the best classroom! Come learn outside in Cosumnes River College’s field study courses. These classes consist of short classroom sessions followed by extended trips to some of the most unique and beautiful environments in California, including Big Sur, Monterey Bay, Mt. Lassen, Point Reyes, Yosemite and more! These short-term classes are offered by several departments, including Biology, Geography, Geology, Photography, and Physical Education.
