Programs:

Kinesiology

Faculty of Science, Department of Kinesiology

Program is primarily research oriented with opportunities for study in human performance physiology, exercise rehabilitation, motor behaviour and control, health psychology and biomechanics. One emphasis of the program is research related to the problems encountered by a special populations during physical activity and to the adaptation of human movement to meet the special requirements of these populations.

Degree Details

Master of Science (M.Sc.)

MSc Studies in Kinesiology consists of both course work and a research thesis and takes a full time student about 2 years to complete . Candidates for the MSc degree are required to complete their courses with an overall average of no less than B plus. Requirements are successful completion of : a) KIN 701 Statistical Methods in Kinesiology, b) three other single-term elective courses, two of which must be KIN courses, c) any other courses your supervisory and advising committee believes you need to succeed in the program (this may include an undergrad course to fill a knowledge void). Please note that Kin 723 Directed Readings course requires that a detailed outline containing the reading lists and method of evaluation be filed with the Graduate Administrator. In addition, participation with no less than 75% attendance for Departmental Graduate Seminar series, is expected for both full and part time students
