Program Description

Kinesiology is an academic area concerned with the art and science of human movement, with particular reference to physical, mental, emotional and social variables.

Features

A large gymnasium, mirrored dance studio, mirrored activity room, mirrored weight training room, exercise laboratory, swimming pool, athletic training room, tennis courts, activity field and track are available for instructional and recreational use.

Faculty curriculum planners carefully monitor the academic programs at comparable universities as well as examine state certification programs to align existing programs with current trends and requirements. Additionally, they forecast future specializations. The faculty also makes every effort to facilitate the transfer of students from feeder colleges to CSU Dominguez Hills and from CSU Dominguez Hills to other universities.

Faculty keep regularly scheduled office hours and are available during those hours to talk with students in person, by telephone or online.

The multicultural campus community at CSU Dominguez Hills provides opportunities for greater understanding of a wide variety
of cultural and ethnic groups. This unique social environment is invaluable for students preparing for people-oriented careers.

B. Undergraduate Students

1.   New students need to purchase or download a University Catalog.

2.   Students should initiate advisement by contacting the Division secretary who will schedule the initial advising appointment.

3.   During their first advisement meeting, students will be given a copy of an advisement sheet for their academic program. The advisor also will open an advisement file for each student which will be stored in the Division Office.

4.   Transfer students should schedule an appointment with the Division Chair and bring with them copies of their transcripts and course descriptions.

5.   Each time students meet with their advisor they should bring their file from the Division office, their advisement sheet and the University Catalog that was in effect when they were admitted to the university, in order to ensure that the advisement sheet and file will be kept up-to-date.

6.   Advisement must be sought each semester prior to registration throughout their studies at CSU Dominguez Hills.

7.   Students’ final advisement meeting should take place when they complete 90 units and just before they file for graduation. Students must file for graduation at the Office of the Registrar and adhere to the important dates listed in the Class Schedule.

Preparation

High school students planning to seek a Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education should:

H    enroll in a physical education class each semester and develop skills in many activities.

H    participate in an interscholastic sport and/or dance production.

H    work on oral communication skills by enrolling in a speech class.

H    work on writing skills in English classes.

H    work on math skills up to, and including, Algebra II.

H    study biology and physiology. Physics is also recommended.

H    take advantage of elective classes in graphic design and psychology.

H    master computer skills including word processing and typing.

H    seek part-time employment in physical activity programs (summer camps, youth sports programs, playgrounds, private fitness clubs, recreation centers, dance studios, etc.).

H    volunteer to serve at athletics and dance events as an organizer, official, score keeper, fund raiser or assistant.

H    earn certification from the American Red Cross in First Aid, CPR, Lifeguarding and Water Safety Instructor.

If students are planning to transfer to CSU Dominguez Hills from a community college, the Division suggests taking courses that are equivalent to its lower division physical education requirements. These courses include Anatomy; Physiology; First Aid and CPR; and a variety of activity classes in Physical Education and Dance.

Helpful Hints

1.   Students should seek advisement regularly.

2.   Students should keep the advisement sheet up-to-date and bring it with them whenever they meet with their advisor. Each semester students should enroll in a physical education activity class to broaden their knowledge and keep physically active.

3.   Most major requirements are only offered once a year, so students must plan accordingly.

4.   Students should begin by taking lower division courses first.

5.   Single Field Teaching Option majors should consider additional coursework in science, English or math, since teaching proficiency in these areas is still in demand. It also would benefit future teachers to gain speaking proficiency in Spanish and mastery level proficiency in technology use.

6.   Dance Concentration majors should consider additional upper division coursework in dance.

7.   Majors and minors should maintain a model level of physical fitness and wellness; join the CSU Dominguez Hills Student Unit of CAHPERD, California’s most prestigious professional organization for health, physical education, recreation and dance; and attend professional conferences regularly.

8.   Students should regularly check the bulletin boards located outside the Division office for job opportunities and important announcements related to their educational goals.

Career Opportunities

A B.A. in Physical Education offers four options in the major. The Pre-Physical Therapy Option provides the prerequisites for Physical Therapy schools and can serve as a pre-medical preparation program. The Fitness Director Option enables students to assume leadership positions in fitness establishments in the public and private sectors. The Physical Education Teaching Option is designed for students seeking a teaching career in elementary or secondary physical education, or planning to enter graduate programs in preparation for teaching careers at the college or university levels. A Physical Education Dance Concentration is designed for students seeking a teaching career in elementary or secondary dance education.

Within the Physical Education Minor, two options are offered. The Coaching minor is for students planning to work as coaches in chosen areas of sports specialization. The Teaching minor qualifies credentialed teachers in other subject areas to teach Physical Education in grades K-9.

Two Subject Matter Programs in Physical Education are offered for students who wish to pursue a single-subject teaching credential through the College of Professional Studies.

A Fitness Instructor Certificate is offered to meet the needs of individuals who are either presently employed or intend to seek employment as fitness instructors in health clubs, recreation centers, YM/WCAs or corporate fitness programs. Requirements for the certificate are based on guidelines established by the American College of Sports Medicine and the Association of Fitness in Business and Industry. The certificate can be completed independent of a bachelor’s degree.

Student Organizations

The faculty encourages professional participation by sponsoring a student unit of CAHPERD, Sports Medicine Club and Recreation Club. The faculty also participates actively in professional organizations and activities, and encourages student involvement, which translates into a broad professional support system for faculty and students.
