Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)

Human Kinetics (HK)

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

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 select CIS*1200 as early in the program as possible.

Major (Honours Program)

Students may enter this major in Semester 1 or any semester thereafter. A student wishing to declare the major must consult the Faculty Advisor. A minimum of 20.00 credits is required.
