Kinesiology is a broad and interdisciplinary field, involving aspects of biosciences, psychology, sociocultural studies and management and leadership, united by a focus on human movement. The course-based MKin program exposes students to the breadth of kinesiology, while providing an opportunity to tailor degree experiences to individual interests and goals.

This is a one year program offering a combination of interdisciplinary courses and applied learning in a professional setting. Students guide the content of their program by selecting courses and a capstone experience based on their areas of interest.

*Prospective students are advised that offers of admission to a new program may be made only after the university's own quality assurance processes have been completed.
