Master of Science Human Kinetics (MScHK)

An integrated approach to the study of sport, physical activity and health allows students and professors to share research interests and professional expertise, and to contribute to the broad field of human kinetics.

The MSc program pursues three major objectives:

  • To contribute to the accumulation of facts and scientific data related to sport, physical activity and health, as well as to foster the development of critical thinking skills and problem solving abilities.
  • To facilitate the acquisition of quantitative and qualitative knowledge in the field of biophysical sciences of sport, physical activity and health.
  • To prepare human kinetics specialists so that they are better able to play a determinant role in Canadian society.
