Our Kinesiology Area of Study will introduce you to the needed courses to prepare for a transfer degree in Kinesiology. You will gain the skills needed to pursue a four-year degree in kinesiology, exercise science, biomechanics, exercise physiologist, athletic trainer, and many more.

There is an explosion of health and exercise-related careers, and the foundation you will build at Hinds will put you in the perfect position to pursue advanced degrees. Our curriculum builds the foundation for upper-level education upon transfer while completing the general education requirements for most baccalaureate degrees

After completing your Associate of Arts degree at Hinds, you will be able to transfer to a four-year institution and earn your Bachelor of Science degree. Fitness instructor, personal trainer, health educator, strength and conditioning specialist, parks and recreation director, travel ball director, and geriatric mobility specialist are just a few of the careers you could expect. If you choose to continue your education, once you complete graduate school you could become a nutritionist, athletic trainer, occupational therapist, or physical therapist.
