Kinesiology Division

The Kinesiology Division offers a wide variety of courses to meet the varied interests of the Glendale College student within four departments; Kinesiology (KIN), Health (HLTH), Athletic Physical Education (ATHPE) and Physical Education (PE). All courses are coeducational unless otherwise noted. The Division also serves the needs of students completing majors in other fields who find that certain aspects of Adapted Physical Education, Athletics, Health, Kinesiology, and Physical Education are important to their professional objectives and personal interests.

Our mission is to foster in a diverse group of students an understanding and appreciation of human movement functions and to encourage and develop learning skills that enhance their personal and professional growth.

The Division offers the following degrees/certificates:

  • Associate of Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer (KIN AA-T)

In addition to offering these programs, the Division of Kinesiology contributes to the overall mission of the College by interacting with the community through clinics and camps, conducting applied research, and providing students with general education, interdisciplinary and physical activity courses.
