X--Degree Programs, Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)

Human Kinetics (HK)

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

Faculty Advisor: Dr. B.A. Wilson, ANNU 336B

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.

If lacking the fundamentals of word processing, spread sheet use and data management, the student should elect CIS*1200 as early in the program as possible.

Areas of Emphasis

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

Sports Injury Management (SIM)

Contact: Dr. B.A. Wilson, ext. 2297.

This is a collaborative effort between the Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning 3-year diploma program in Sports Injury Management and the University of Guelph B.Sc. Human Kinetics major program. Semester 2 B.Sc. students may be selected for admission and concurrent registration over the next four year period to the Human Kinetics major in this area of emphasis and the Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning Sports Injury Management program. Semester 4 students may be selected for admission into this area of emphasis if space is available. Since space in this area of emphasis is limited, admission is competitive and is based on academic achievement and an interview process. Students will enrol in courses at Guelph for semesters 1 to 6 and at Sheridan for semesters 7 to 10. Upon successful completion, students will earn both a University of Guelph B.Sc. degree and a Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning diploma. A total of 27.25 credits is required.
