Human Kinetics

Department of Human Biology and Nutritional Sciences, College of Biological Science.

Coordinator: Dr. B.A. Wilson, ANNU 355.

Human Kinetics is concerned with understanding capacities for, and limits of, human movement at different ages and with the role of physical activity in human health. Through the use of electives, students may structure a program emphasizing biomechanics and ergonomics, human population biology or nutrition, exercise and metabolism.

Admission to this specialization in semester 3 normally requires a minimum semester average of 70% in the previous 2 full-time semesters. Students declaring this specialization require the signature of the coordinator.

If lacking the fundamentals of word processing, spread sheet use and data management, the student should elect 27-120 as early in the program as possible.

Restricted Electives

Students must complete 4 Arts or Social Science courses. It is recommended that 1 of the 4 courses be in philosophy. A minimum of 4 Human Biology (i.e. 75-XXX) restricted electives at the 300 or 400 level are required. A minimum of six 400 level courses must be selected.

Areas of Emphasis

Students choosing Sports Injury Management must follow the schedule of studies for the area of emphasis.

Sports Injury Management

This is a collaborative effort between the Sheridan College of Applied Arts and Technology diploma program in Sports Injury Management and the University of Guelph B.Sc. Specialized Honours Human Kinetics program. Upon successful completion, students will earn both a University of Guelph B.Sc. degree and a Sheridan College diploma. The schedule of study for the Area of Emphasis is currently under revision. Please contact the Departmental advisor, Dr. B.A. Wilson, ext. 2297, for details.
