Graduate Studies


The Department of Kinesiology offers programs leading to thesis-based MSc and PhD degrees. The program is heavily research oriented and offers opportunities for study in human performance physiology, exercise rehabilitation, motor behaviour and control, health psychology and biomechanics. One emphasis of the program is research related to the problems encountered by a variety of populations during physical activity and to the adaptation of human movement to meet the special requirements of these populations.

The populations include children, the elderly and the disabled, those with particular meducal conditions or challenges, as well as young and middle-aged adults. There is close collaboration with faculty members in Health Sciences, Engineering, and Psychology. For more details, check out the Associate Chair's welcome.
