Purpose: The Health and Physical Education Specialization of the General Studies Transfer Degree Program is designed for students who plan to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Health, Physical Education, or Kinesiology at a four-year college or university. Career paths include teacher education, athletic training, exercise science, or health science.

Students who complete this program of study may be eligible to earn junior-class standing at a four-year college or university and will have completed courses that generally serve as prerequisites for advanced undergraduate coursework in Health and/or Physical Education.

Like other transfer degree programs, students pursuing the Health and Physical Education Specialization take courses that are accepted at most public four year institutions in a wide variety of baccalaureate degree programs. However, departments of Physical Education, Health, and Kinesiology differ greatly in their approaches to the undergraduate major and students are urged to acquaint themselves with the degree requirements of potential college or university transfer destinations.

Admission Requirements: All students will be required to demonstrate college readiness through assessment and/or transcript review and may be required to take placement tests in math, writing, and reading to aid in placing students in the appropriate courses.
