The curriculum of the HBK degree is based upon recommendations from the National Conference of Canadian Universities and Colleges. Courses offered in Kinesiology cover a broad base of human movement-related topics and the combination of required and elective courses gives the student a wide perspective on the multi-disciplinary nature of the field.
For students who entered our program in Fall 2022 or later, they must take all required Kinesiology courses totaling 10.5 full course equivalents (FCEs) plus three required FCEs from the Biology, English and Chemistry departments. Elective courses may then be chosen from within the school or outside of the school depending upon the student's career objectives.
A total of 20 FCEs plus Kinesiology 4193 are required for graduation. Also to graduate, students must have a minimum of 70% cumulative average in all Kinesiology courses included in the 20 FCEs counted towards the degree and a minimum of 60% cumulative overall average.
Students who started our program prior to Fall 2022 are required to earn 11 FCE in required Kinesiology courses and a total of 22 FCEs. Check the calendar that aligns with the year you started school for specific details, or contact your academic advisor for assistance.
