The associate degree in Movement Science provides students with a solid foundation to begin a career in the fitness field. It offers a combination of theory and applied classes, combined with an internship in the fitness field. Students completing this program will be well positioned to transfer to a four-year institution in fields such as exercise science, kinesiology, athletic training, and sports management, among others. Students also will be well prepared to take national certification exams for personal fitness trainers and group exercise instructors.
Students who satisfactorily complete all college and program requirements qualify for an associate in applied science degree.
Not all courses are offered each semester. Students should work with an academic advisor to develop a schedule that will work for them. Students planning to transfer should check the transfer institution’s requirements/guides or discuss their options with an academic advisor. Number of credits may vary depending on the course selection.
