Mission

Our mission is to study human structure and function and their relation to health and movement. We seek to advance, apply and disseminate relevant knowledge and expertise.

The school builds on the basic sciences to link the study of movement, physiology and health with the broad scope of human endeavour. Our faculty comprises anatomists, biochemists, biologists, biomechanists, biophysicists, engineers, ergonomists, kinesiologists, physicians, physiologists and psychologists. We apply our knowledge to study structure and function throughout the life cycle, in health and disease, in benign and extreme environments, at work, at home, at sports and at play. Our educational goals are to impart a sound knowledge base and to promote critical thinking, problem solving, research, technical and communication skills appropriate to the field, through our undergraduate, graduate and continuing studies programs.

To this end, we strive for excellence in teaching, research and service programs focused on the following aspects of the human condition.

and on the following applied disciplines:

Transfer Credit and Residency Requirements

Transfer students are advised that residency requirements apply to programs offered by the School of Kinesiology. See "Residency Requirements"..

Programs

The School of Kinesiology offers programs leading to a BSc (Kinesiology), BSc honors (Kinesiology), minor in kinesiology, post baccalaureate diploma in kinesiology, certificate in applied human nutrition, and certificate in health and fitness studies. The cooperative education program helps kinesiology majors gain valuable work experience during their undergraduate studies.

Areas of concentration have been established to offer cross-disciplinary undergraduate programs specializing in the following complementary areas.

Choosing an area of concentration is not necessary to receive a BSc (Kinesiology). A general kinesiology option is still available. The general option and the three areas of concentration include a common core covering basic anatomy, physiology, and prerequisite knowledge from the biological, chemical, physical and mathematical sciences fundamental to understanding human structure and function. The `core' refers to those aspects that are required for the degree, regardless of concentration.

Teaching Certification

Kinesiology students with an appropriate selection of courses can apply to the British Columbia College of Teachers (BCCT) to have their degree accepted for professional certification. BCCT will review each application on an individual basis. Please contact the School of Kinesiology for more information.

Major Program

Admission Requirements

Entry to the bachelor of science (kinesiology) program is possible via

Admission is competitive. A separate admission average for each of the three entry routes is established each semester, depending on the number of spaces available and subject to the approval of the Dean of Applied Sciences. Admission averages are calculated over five required courses from high school or 11 or more required post secondary courses. If one or more courses have been duplicated (repeated), the grades from all course attempts will be used equally in calculating the kinesiology admission GPA.

Direct Admission - High School and Direct Transfer, Post Secondary Institutions

See "British Columbia and Yukon Applicants"..

For students transferring some of the core courses from another post secondary institution: only courses completed at SFU (and not previously taken elsewhere) are used in the kinesiology admission GPA. Normally, at least 15 credits from core courses are required to establish a basis for the GPA calculation. Exceptions must be approved by the school.
