The objective of the Kinesiology Department at South Texas College is to prepare Kinesiology Majors to continue along an educational path to meet desired goals and to seek opportunities to be advocates for healthy lifestyles. Students are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities, especially those involving new skills.

The department offers a variety of academic, distance learning, and physical activity laboratory courses in the areas of physical education pedagogy (teaching), fitness, health education, and specialized certification courses. Activity courses are designed for beginners, unless otherwise described.

The vast majority of Kinesiology lecture courses are transferable toward a B.S. degree in Kinesiology at 4-year institutions. Additionally, the department offers a diverse range of physical activity laboratory courses (individual and team sports), which fulfill the required Kinesiology physical activity credits for the Associate of Art's degree. In addition, students with disabilities participate in physical education and the Kinesiology Department in conjunction with ADA can arrange for an adapted program or advise the student concerning course selection.
