Laurier’s Bachelor of Kinesiology (BKin) program is the study of human movement, sport and physical activity using the sciences, humanities and social sciences. We value a broad approach to the disciplines of kinesiology and physical activity, where the application of theoretical knowledge is key. That means in addition to taking practicum/activity courses in fundamental and applied movement skills, you’ll study physical activity through the integrative perspectives of psychology, motor control, sociology, biomechanics, history, physiology, health and philosophy.
You may choose to focus your studies in one of four concentration areas, which will appear on your transcript: Health and Rehabilitation; Human Movement and Performance; Physical Activity Promotion; and Teaching, Coaching and Management.
Graduates of our program can be found working as occupational and physical therapists, teaching in schools throughout the province, practicing as physicians, chiropractors and massage therapists, following careers in sports administration, personal fitness training or law enforcement, or building businesses for themselves.
