The School of Human Kinetics and Recreation (HKR) at Memorial offers a small school atmosphere with the benefits of a larger university. You’ll receive instruction from professors who get to know you and want you to succeed; you’ll engage with the community; and you’ll have the opportunity to conduct research alongside award-winning faculty. As a student, you can make a difference.

We pride ourselves on our student-centred experiential approach to teaching. In other words, you won’t just learn in the classroom – you’ll learn everywhere.

The School offers undergraduate degrees to get you started on your professional career path, and graduate degrees to support your career growth.

At the School of Human Kinetics, we dream big! We have a Vision, Mission and Values to be leaders in physical activity, leisure, and wellness with the purpose of advancing knowledge and benefiting people, communities, and society.


Happy Research Week!

Last night was our first event of research week, and it was a great success! We had eleven undergraduate and Master's students present their research in a 3MT format. Big congrats to all who participated, and a special shoutout to our winners, Olivia Ryan (1st), Julia Craig (2nd) and Ava McGrath (3rd). I think Greg would agree that Chris Coady should have won the People's Choice award for his passionate and moving presentation.
