Program Requirements

California State San Marcos’ Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology: Movement Science Option allows students to complete their B.S. in as little as 16 months. This 53 semester unit, cohort-based accelerated program requires 16 months of study (6 units every 8 weeks) including summer semester. The cohort based model utilized through Extended Learning guarantees each admitted student a seat in every class in the major. The program will admit two times a year, Fall and Spring, keeping class sized small and promoting greater personal attention.


A cohort is a group of students who work through a curriculum together to achieve the same academic degree. Because they are accepted into the same program, take their classes together, and graduate together, students in cohorts tend to form a strong support system and professional network that benefit them during their degree program and beyond
