The Department of Physical Education and Kinesiology offers a 20 credit Bachelor of Physical Education (BPhEd) degree, a Concurrent Bachelor of Physical Education/Bachelor of Education (BPhEd (Honours)/BEd) Intermediate/Senior and a BPhEd (Honours)/BEd Primary/Junior degree. Within the BPhEd degree students may choose one of three majors. The Department of Physical Education and Kinesiology is accredited through the Canadian Council of Physical Education and Kinesiology Administrators.

The requirement for graduation with a BPhEd (Honours) is a minimum 70 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent non-major average. The requirement for graduation with a BPhEd with a Major is a minimum 60 percent major average and a 60 percent minimum overall average.

New applications to the BPhEd program 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.

Successful graduates of the Concurrent BPhEd (Honours)/BEd degree will receive an Honours Bachelor of Physical Education degree and a Bachelor of Education degree. Depending on program taken, the Dean of the Faculty of Education may recommend that the Ontario College of Teachers grant an Ontario Certificate of Qualification certifying them to teach Primary/Junior (grades K-6) or Intermediate/Senior (grades 7-12).

The BPhEd General major provides students with a broadly based understanding of the discipline. This stream allows maximum opportunity for students to pursue various combinations of courses within their particular areas of interest.

The BPhEd Disability Studies major focuses on the therapeutic and holistic benefits of physical activity. This stream allows students to gain an understanding of the application of movement analyses and programming to persons living with disabilities and chronic conditions.

The BPhEd Movement Studies major offers a combination of theoretical and practical courses in physical education. This stream allows students to apply movement knowledge in educational contexts such as teaching, coaching, programming and administration.
