Collin College provides general academic courses and electives for students who plan to transfer to a college or university. Because of the various transfer requirements at colleges and universities, and to ensure enrollment in appropriate courses, students should verify course transferability and degree applicability with a Collin College academic advisor and/or the college or university that they plan to attend.

To earn an associate degree, complete the 42 credit hour General Education Core, and 18 credit hours of general studies electives and the Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree requirements.

Check with your transfer institution before registering for general studies electives to make sure your courses will be degree applicable to your bachelor’s degree at the transfer institution.

Kinesiology is the study of the mechanics of the human body. The degree prepares students by providing the scientific foundations necessary to successfully transfer and pursue a science degree in the area of kinesiology at a four-year college/university. Kinesiology courses lay the groundwork for a career as a physical therapist, an athletic or personal trainer, health educator, coach or in sports management. They also allow you to learn the knowledge and physical skills for lifetime sports and wellness through the KINE activity and theory classes.
