The School of Kinesiology and Health Science has a curriculum which presents wide and flexible offerings to the student. All students take a core of required subject matter encompassing the major areas of emphasis in kinesiology and health science. Students may choose from a variety of elective courses to develop a highly specialized area of interest or to obtain a more general and broad program. The school attaches laboratories, field work and seminars to many of its courses, thereby coupling theory and technical knowledge with applied experiences and providing students with a greater opportunity for exchange and discussion with each other, with teachers and with experts in the area. The school also has grouped courses, enabling students to obtain certification in the areas of athletic therapy, sport administration, coaching and fitness assessment and exercise counselling.

A physical activity skills “practicum” program is an integral part of the undergraduate program in Kinesiology and Health Science. Students take one practicum course in each of the following six areas: dance/gymnastics, aquatics, team sports, individual and dual sports, track and field, and emergency care, and complete their requirements from the large variety of practicum courses offered.

For specific program requirements please consult the Faculty of Health Programs of Study section.
