The Bachelor of Kinesiology degree provides both breadth and depth of knowledge in understanding the field of kinesiology, and prepares students to pursue a variety of careers. In particular, the Exercise Science specialization prepares students for registration as a practicing Kinesiologist, graduate school, and/or professional school (such as physiotherapy, medicine or chiropractics). The Pedagogy specialization prepares students for entrance into a teacher certification program, graduate school, and careers as a coach or personal trainer. In the Kinesiology program, students 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 first and second year, learn about topics such as human anatomy, sport psychology, biomechanics, and physical activity. Students explore a variety of fields that may be of interest before choosing to specialize in exercise science or pedagogy.
