Graduate Programs Kinesiology (MSc and PhD)

The Department of Kinesiology & Physical Education offers a MSc in Kinesiology.

The main objective of the MSc in Kinesiology is to provide graduate students with a highly integrated and multidisciplinary approach to the examination of the relationships among physical activity, health, and disease in various populations. The course of study will allow some specialization in a kinesiology sub-discipline of the studentís research interest (e.g., biomechanics, health, exercise physiology, motor control, sport psychology). The emphasis of the thesis will be based on the studentís own interests and the advisorís research interests within this broad framework.
