Kinesiology, the "study of movement" also known as exercise, sport, or movement science, is a multidisciplinary field which considers the sociological, psychological, and developmental perspectives of physical activity and sports while examining the biological and mechanical foundations of movement. This versatile BSc program provides students with a breadth of theoretical knowledge applied to human movement from anatomy to ergonomics and practical experiences. Career outcomes may be found in the areas of ergonomics, protective equipment design, health and lifestyle counseling, physical fitness evaluation, exercise prescription and supervision, as well as sport administration. The program also allows the opportunity for related specialization through minor programs available in other departments in the university while providing an excellent background for advanced studies in all aspects of kinesiology, in physical and occupational therapy, or medicine.
