Our Programs

Bachelor of Kinesiology

The BKin program provides students with a breadth of understanding in kinesiology.

In the first two years, providing foundational courses in history, philosophy, sociology, motor control, psychology, anatomy, physiology, health, and biomechanics.

In the third and fourth years, students will have the opportunity to deepen their understanding in areas of interest, including human movement and performance and physical activity promotion, and at the same time have greater flexibility in course selection.

All students will be required to take 1.5 credits worth of our new activity/practicum courses that will provide a deeper understanding of fundamental movement skills and physical literacy across a broad range of activities. For more information, see Progression Requirements.

Graduate Programs in Kinesiology

The Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education currently offers two graduate programs:

Current Honours Kinesiology BA and BSc students should review the progression requirements specific to their degree program and to ensure that all program requirements including leadership hours have been met in order to graduate.
