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.
