Streams and Requirements

This stream offers increased flexibility for students, allowing them to choose electives that suit their interests and career pursuits. This stream prepares students for the kinesiology career of their choice or for advanced studies in liberal arts or sciences. Students are able to complete minors in Land and Food Systems, science, arts, or commerce.

  • Students planning to apply to professional health science programs such as Physiotherapy and Medicine are strongly encouraged to determine the necessary undergraduate requirements that are available in other faculties such as Science and Arts.
  • Students in the Interdisciplinary stream must, as a minimum, complete an additional 18 credits of non-KIN electives, of which at least 12 credits must be at the 300/400 level. Students are advised to note prerequisites for 300/400-level non-KIN electives.
  • All students must complete 30 credits of KIN courses at the 300/400 level.
  • All students must complete 48 credits at the 300/400 level.
  • Students are able to complete arts, commerce, nutritional sciences or science minors.

The Leadership Education for Physical Activity, Sport, and Health stream (LEED, formerly PEDH) prepares students for leadership and instructional careers in a variety of physical activity and sport settings in both public and private agencies. Students in the LEED program who wish to enter the faculty of education to pursue school-based physical education teaching careers, following completion of the BKIN, will have fulfilled Faculty of Education admission requirements through the course requirements of the LEED stream. The Leadership Education for Physical Activity, Sport, and Health stream is an accredited program certified by the Canadian Colleges and Universities Physical Education and Kinesiologists Association (CCUPEKA). Students are able to complete minors in Land and Food Systems, science, arts, or commerce.

  • Students planning to enter the Teacher Education Program in the Faculty of Education need to review the detailed admission requirements.
  • Students planning to apply for the secondary option must prepare a second teaching field.
  • Students in the Leadership Education for Physical Activity, Sport, and Health stream (LEED, formerly PEDH) stream must complete a minimum of 18 credits of non-KIN electives, of which at least 12 credits must be at the 300/400 level.
