Three New Degrees offered in Bishop and Mammoth Lakes

Cerro Coso Community College announced the addition of three new Associate Degrees for Transfer available at their Eastern Sierra College Centers in Bishop and Mammoth Lakes. The new joint transfer program between California Community Colleges and California State Universities makes it easier for students to transfer between the two school systems. For the first time in California history, community college students who complete a new AA-T or AS-T will be guaranteed admissions to the California State University system.

The College is now offering transfer degrees in Kinesiology, Psychology, and Studio Arts at the Bishop and Mammoth Lakes campuses.

Interested in a career in Athletic Training, Coaching, Fitness Center Administration, or Physical Therapy? The Kinesiology Transfer Degree focuses on scientific, functional and mechanical processes of the human body. Students will learn and understand how to display increasing confidence and preparation in a wide range of areas including, but not limited to, sports medicine, exercise physiology, philosophy, sociology and psychology of sports, personal training, biomechanics, motor development and coaching. The degree will prepare students to pursue further study and achievement of a baccalaureate degree in the discipline of Kinesiology.

The Psychology Transfer Degree is the perfect path of study for those students interested in careers in Research, Counseling, Social Work, Clinical Settings, and Human Resources. Psychology is the social science discipline most concerned with studying the behavior, mental processes, growth and well-being of individuals. Psychological inquiry also examines the roles played by biological and sociocultural factors that affect behavior and mental processes. A broad discipline and profession, Psychology has both scientific and applied branches, with practical applications for personal growth and well-being. This degree will provide the foundational knowledge in Psychology to students who want to earn a Baccalaureate Degree in Psychology.

For those creative people looking to learn the skills and techniques needed to express themselves as visual artists, the new Studio Arts Transfer Degree might be the right path of study for you. This program provides students with a solid foundation in the visual arts through courses that develop a broad range of knowledge, skills, and competencies essential for advanced study. Students will take courses in drawing, design, art history, and more, with professors who are working artists as well as experienced educators.
