Bachelor of Health Science (Honours) - Kinesiology

The Kinesiology major is nationally accredited by the Canadian Council of Physical Education and Kinesiology Administrators. 

It provides a focused set of options directed toward understanding human movement for health and human performance. 

Students learn about human physiology, and how it is altered by exercise; about biomechanics and how to prevent workplace injuries; about the importance of physical activity for individuals with chronic conditions or disabilities; about how the brain controls movement and the relationship to pain and injury; about sport psychology and the impact on sport performance; and much more. 

Through many of the courses in the program, students will gain hands‐on experience through laboratory sessions. 

In fourth year, elective opportunities exist whereby students can pursue either a Kinesiology or Athletic Therapy internship to further develop competency in their chosen field. 

Kinesiology internships can range from placements in fitness facilities, schools, cardiac rehabilitation programs, programs for children with disabilities, rehabilitation clinics, sports teams, and more. 

The Athletic Therapy internship involves placement as a student therapist with a varsity athletic team and students become certified as Advanced Medical First Responders.

Kinesiology graduates will be prepared to embark on careers in healthcare, sport or private practice. 

Graduates who take a set of recommended courses will have covered the core competencies required by the College of Kinesiologists of Ontario as well as a number of additional certifications relevant to the various fields in Kinesiology. 

Those interested in pursuing these certifications will generally require additional practical experience before writing the registration exams. 

Students will also be eligible to apply for admission to several professional postgraduate programs such as physical or occupational therapy, medical school, chiropractic, law school, master's in business administration, research-based masters in Kinesiology and much more.

 

Learning environment

You will have access to new, modern buildings, libraries and innovative labs including the Kinesiology Teaching Laboratory.
