Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

SSHRC Post-Doctoral Fellow, Nipissing University

In addition to having the opportunity to work with a leading expert in an area of research I was keen to explore, the vibrant sense of community among the students and faculty provided a supportive yet challenging environment for my graduate studies. The weekly research seminars combined with specialized courses helped me to acquire the necessary skills and experiences to conduct rigorous and meaningful research. Outside of the classroom, the department’s strong links with the Waterloo community also afforded opportunities to engage in community outreach initiatives and knowledge translation.

PhD Student, Wilfrid Laurier University

My years as a graduate student in Kinesiology and Physical Education at Laurier have proven to be invaluable. Not only have I conducted research that I am passionate about and developed a strong resume, I have also grown as an individual, built lasting friendships, and fostered skills transferrable to any workplace. I highly recommend Kinesiology at Laurier for anyone who is looking to pursue graduate studies.

MSc, 2012
Medical Resident, Internal Medicine Program, University of Ottawa

The Kinesiology graduate program at WLU was an essential component of my training to become a medical doctor. During my time at WLU, I learned principles of qualitative, quantitative, and philosophical research. I use the knowledge I learned from WLU on a daily basis to deliver the best care possible to patients. There are many routes to get to medical school but I would recommend the WLU Kinesiology Graduate Program to anyone looking to expand their understanding of research methods before pursuing a career in clinical medicine.
