Kinesiology

Overview

The Folsom Lake College kinesiology curriculum offers a wide variety of courses to accommodate varying fitness levels, interests, and abilities, including: cardiovascular training, strength training, martial arts, mind/body courses like yoga and tai chi, individual sport activities such as archery and tennis, intercollegiate athletics, and lecture courses for aspiring fitness professionals and transfer students.

Students will not only learn how to perform activities with proper technique, but they will learn principles of exercise science and biomechanics which can then be applied to their training. Students should carefully read the course description to determine if it will meet their needs. Many of the courses transfer to both the CSU and UC systems and meet requirements for the degree and certificate programs. However, some four-year colleges and universities limit the number of units they will accept toward the bachelor’s degree. Students are advised to see a counselor for assistance in selecting the courses best aligned with their transfer institution.
