Administrative Assistants Susan Gale-Wolbert (905) 688-5550, extension 4358 Walker Complex 283 Donna Phelps 905-688-5550, extension 4957 Walker Complex 281A https://brocku.ca/deptphysed/ The Department of Physical Education and Kinesiology offers a 20 credit Bachelor of Kinesiology (BKin) degree and a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology (BSc (Kin)) degree. The Department of Physical Education and Kinesiology has applied for accreditation through the Canadian Council of Physical Education and Kinesiology Administrators. The requirement for graduation with a BKin or BSc (Kin) (Honours) is a minimum 70 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent non-major average. The requirement for graduation with a BKin or BSc (Kin) degree is a minimum 60 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent overall average. New applications to the BKin and BSc (Kin) programs are accepted in years 2 and 3. Application forms are available in the Physical Education and Kinesiology office from April 1. Forms must be completed and returned to the office by June 1. These are limited enrolment programs. Admission is not guaranteed by attainment of the minimum requirements. The BKin degree focusses on the biophysical, behavioural and socio-cultural aspects of kinesiology and is based on a science practice model that prepares students for selected certification in the allied health professions. The curriculum emphasizes bioscience courses, the development of research skills, and the application of theoretical knowledge in laboratory settings. The BSc (Kin) degree focusses on the biophysical aspects of kinesiology and prepares students for careers in health professions. This bioscience degree is designed for students who wish to concentrate on the science of human movement and/or postgraduate degree programs in biophysical kinesiology and the allied health professions.
