Explore the science behind human exercise, health and physical activity. Our programs give you the professional knowledge and skills to interpret, apply and conduct health science research. You learn to assess, evaluate and design programs that can maintain and improve health, fitness and athletic performance.
Through lectures, hands-on lab instruction and internships, you practise clinical skills related to rehabilitation, and the improvement or maintenance of personal health. Working in small groups and using state-of-the-art facilities, you study a range of people, from individuals suffering from chronic disease to elite athletes.
The department offers you three options to specialize in:
Honours program: gives you the chance to participate in focused research with faculty
Athletic Therapy: the only program of its kind in Eastern Canada, accredited by the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA)
The BSc Honours in Exercise Science offers additional courses providing research training in a variety of applied-science and health areas. Students graduating from the BSc Honours program will possess an academic background compatible with the entry requirements for the majority of graduate schools. Students must meet the University regulations concerning the Honours degree.
*Students seeking admission to the Honours program apply to the Department Honours Committee normally following the completion of 24 program credits. Applications should be sent to the Interim Honours Advisor, Robert Panenic, by March 15th. Applications must include a:
