Course info

Summary

As the study of human movement, kinesiology explores a broad range of topics that include anatomy, biomechanics, exercise physiology, sociology, education, active health, wellness, and nutrition.

Bachelor of Kinesiology

In the Kinesiology program, you go well beyond the questions of how and why we move, and start to explore how we can optimize the human potential for motor skill performance.

In your first and second year, you learn about topics such as human anatomy, sport psychology, biomechanics, and physical activity. You explore a variety of fields that may be of interest before choosing to specialize in exercise science or pedagogy.

In your third and fourth year, you develop skills for counselling athletes and learn about athletic injuries and physiology. You also select a specialty out of the following options:

  • The exercise science option prepares you for registration as a kinesiologist, graduate school, and/or professional school (such as physiotherapy, medicine or chiropractic).
  • The pedagogy option prepares you for continued certification in teacher education, coaching, personal training, and/or graduate school.

The core course requirements are the same for both paths. However, exercise science is geared towards biology and research methods, whereas pedagogy involves learning how to educate others about health and movement.

CAREER EXPECTATIONS

A growing awareness of the benefits of exercise combined with the aging of the population is opening up opportunities in the health and fitness industry.
