Bachelor of Kinesiology

The kinesiology degree is one of Memorial University's most sought-after programs. Students are exposed to a comprehensive four years of study on the art and science of human movement.

As a kinesiology student, you will learn to approach movement from an interdisciplinary perspective. You will understand the complex interaction of the physiological, biomechanical, psychological, and sociological principles of human movement. You will explore how and why we move and how we can optimize human potential for movement and performance.
