Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology: Concentration in Exercise and Movement Sciences – KIN Associate Degree for Transfer Roadmap

This is a sample pathway for students who transfer to San Francisco State University in the current Bulletin year with an AA-T in Kinesiology. At least 12 lower-division units in the major (KIN 250, BIOL 220, BIOL 212, BIOL 213, and one activity unit) and all lower-division GE requirements have been satisfied. Additional units in the major may have been satisfied. Check with a major advisor about the most appropriate course sequence. Degree completion guaranteed in 60 units; see the Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) section for more information.

To Do at SF State:

Enough total units to reach 120 minimum for graduation; 30 units minimum at the upper-division level; to include the following:

University-Wide Requirements: 9-15 Units

  • American Institutions (0-6 units): US History, US Government, CA Government. If not met in transfer, see the next bullet.
  • Upper-division GE (9 units): Courses may satisfy the US History or US/CA Government requirements, and UD-C or UD-D at the same time, if approved for multiple areas.
  • Students entering the major with the AA-T in Kinesiology are not required to fulfill SF State Studies and Complementary Studies requirements.

Kinesiology: Concentration in Exercise and Movement Sciences Major: 39-57 units

KIN 250, BIOL 220 or BIOL 328, BIOL 212, BIOL 213, and one unit of activity met in transfer.

Students who have not completed statistics must see an advisor. MATH 124 is a prerequisite for the major and for specific courses such as KIN 384GW.

University Electives: 0 or More Units

Depends on course choices made at the community college, how transferred units are applied to the requirements above, and course choices at SF State. Some courses may meet more than one requirement, e.g., both in UD GE and the major.
