We are pleased that you are considering Kinesiology at Lakehead University. The study of Human Movement is an exciting venture and allows you to gain a wide variety of knowledge, all related to human activity. As a smaller university, you are able to form bonds with all your classmates and your professors, adding to your university experience. Thunder Bay allows for a multitude of outdoor experiences that are just not possible in a larger urban environment.
Our undergraduate program is a broad based program offering introductory courses in all aspects of human movement including physiology, biomechanics, motor development, motor learning, adapted, psychology, and sociology. Additionally, our Practice of Kinesiology component is directed at allowing you to experience and apply theoretical knowledge gained throughout your coursework. Applicants are required to have Grade 12 U credits in English and Mathematics; two credits chosen from Introductory Kinesiology, Biology, Chemistry, and/or Physics; plus two other grade 12 U or M credits. For more specific admission information, please contact the admissions office for Lakehead University.
As you progress through the four year honours program, in addition to the required Kinesiology and non-Kinesiology courses, you are able to select elective courses in the areas you are most interested in to gain a more in depth perspective. The elective credits are open in nature allowing you the opportunity to explore areas outside of Kinesiology as well if you wish.
Should you have further questions about our program, Lakehead University, or life in Thunder Bay, please contact our Director, Dr. Ian Newhouse.
