Description: Our vibrant interdisciplinary degree programs in Kinesiology and Health Education, as well as Arts programs in Health Studies, all emphasize prevention rather than treatment as the best route to health. From the structure of the cell to the structure of society, your studies will expose you to the complex factors which influence health and wellness. Your courses might explore social determinants of health, the biomechanics of movement, or approaches to health promotion. You might learn ways of measuring body composition, analyzing human motion or evaluating local public health initiatives. Whether you pursue the social or the physical sciences, you will definitely learn how to think and be challenged to expand your perspectives by faculty who are among the world’s experts in their field.

As always, our students will be at the centre of active student life. Opportunities abound to gain work experiences to match one is classroom education by working with seniors, supporting children with disabilities, or coaching in local schools and competitive leagues. A diverse selection of options for involvement exists in sports administration, fitness leadership, athletic therapy and in the Athletics and Recreation program as a participant, athlete, official, event staff or committee member. Finally there are numerous opportunities to fine-tune your instructional or leadership skills through the non-credit instruction program and the activities of PHEKSA, the student association.
