Kinesiology is part of the Kinesiology and Physical Education Department. It is offered as an honours major in the Bachelor of Science degree program, as well as an honours major in the Bachelor of Arts degree program.

Optimize health and performance and prevent injury and illness by understanding human movement in all its complexities and applications. Learn about movement from the perspectives of physiology, anatomy, psychology, sociology, biomechanics, lifestyle and behaviour. Understand human movement in relation to fields of health, clinical science and practice, disease prevention, lifestyle, and sport, gaining a deeper appreciation for how we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139). Acquire hands-on experience in our fully-equipped metabolic, neuromuscular, biomechanical, developmental and psychomotor labs, making you “job ready” upon graduation or preparing you for the College of Kinesiologists of Ontario (CKO) certification.

STUDENT STORY

Irma Van Andel
Kinesiology student ‘10

" Throughout my education, and to this day, kinesiology has made me marvel at God’s creation. From my first day, seeing the doctor patient relationship and the positive changes in patients, I knew this was for me. I spend quality time with my patients, often while they are struggling with something physical but even mental as well. It has been a real blessing to provide empathetic and personal care to those who need it. I had always envisioned having a wellness-based practice that focused on integrating movement into daily life, rather than just passively healing acute injuries. I was offered to take over a wonderful space that functioned as a yoga studio. It was an opportunity I couldn’t say no to. Rewarding moments happen all the time—like a mom being able to put her baby in the crib without back pain. At the same time, it can feel like I am the one factor that determines my business’s success. It’s challenging to remember that God is in charge, and not me. But, through the ups and downs, I am excited to see how God will use my place and position in Bradford to further His Kingdom. See Irma’s full story on Resound. Or, watch the video below: "
