Prepare to work as a qualified exercise professional
Start in September
Students in this two-year kinesiology program study fitness principles, physical fitness training practices, exercise physiology, exercise testing and prescription, nutrition, health promotion, lifestyle management, stress management, growth and development and behavioural change.
Is Kinesiology right for you?
If you would like to become an advocate for fitness and healthy living, Kinesiology may be your path to a fulfilling career.
You'll be prepared to design and implement personalized exercise and physical activity programs and lifestyle education programs as personal trainers or other fitness professionals.
Areas of study include the physiological, psychological and biomechanical foundations for physical fitness and movement education that also lead to healthy lifestyle behaviours.
As a student
Our Kinesiology program is delivered at the Interurban campus with some courses engaging in our natural surroundings and with specialist providers in the community. As a Kinesiology student, you will become an integral part of the Centre for Sport & Exercise Education (CSEE) throughout your program.
You’ll connect theory with hands-on practice through interactive classroom, lab and workplace learning environments within clinical, community, sport and recreation settings.
Small class size
With smaller class sizes, you'll get to know your peers and instructors for more in-depth learning, support and camaraderie.
Put your skills to work and gain valuable industry experience. You'll have the choice between a 100-hour work experience or 300-hour internship.
Graduates of the Diploma in Kinesiology meet the requirements to write the Certified Personal Trainer exam through the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP).
Graduates may be interested in continuing on to complete their degree through our Bachelor of Kinesiology or pursue studies at other institutions in the areas of sport and fitness leadership, health promotion, exercise physiology and kinesiology.
