Bachelor of Science (BSc)
Understand what makes the human body capable of such incredible things.
The Bachelor of Science (Honors Specialization) program is designed to give students a deeper appreciation of the life sciences. In addition to investigating courses throughout the broad scope of Kinesiology, that include exercise physiology, biomechanics, anatomy, sports injuries, exercise psychology, sport management and professional ethics, students must choose courses such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Math from the Faculty of Science.
- Kinesiology 1080A/B - Introduction to the Psychomotor Behaviour
- Kinesiology 1070A/B - Psychology of Human Movement Science
- Physiology 1021 - Human Physiology
- 1.0 full credits in two of the following areas:
- Calculus 1000A/B, 1100A/B, 1301A/B, 1501A/B; Applied Mathematics 1201A/B Mathematics 1120A/B, 1225A/B, 1228A/B, 1229A/B, 1600A/B; Statistical Sciences 1024A/B
- 1.0 credits numbered 1000-1999 from other faculties/programs
Note: Prior to graduation students must complete 3.0 senior 2100 and above science designated courses between years 2 to 4. Selected first-year courses affect which senior science courses students are eligible to select.
Progression from Year 1 to Year 2
This is a limited enrolment module (75 spaces) and progression standards may fluctuate from year to year.
- To progress into this module, students require:
- A minimum 70% cumulative average in first year
- No grade less than 60%
- A minimum 70% modular average (Kin 1070A, Kin 1080B, Physiology 1021 and 2.0 Science credits from the 1000 level)
- Students who select the BSc module during Intent to Register, but who are not eligible, will automatically be considered for the Honors BA module (see below) and can attempt to transfer into the BSc module the following year
- Students with a reduced course load will be considered
- Students must have completed the 2.0 science prerequisites to be considered for the BSc
- Students who are missing some or all of Kin 1070/1080 and Phys 1021 are eligible to apply
Graduation minimum average requirements
Students must maintain a 70% average on their senior kinesiology courses with no grade less than 60%. Additionally, students must maintain a cumulative average of 65% with no failed courses.
