Master of Arts
The School of Kinesiology continues to attract top students to its highly regarded graduate program where we offer studies at both the masters and doctoral level. The School has excellent research facilities and graduate students are mentored by some of the top professors and researchers in the field of Kinesiology. We offer graduate students original investigations (MA, MSc, PhD) and advanced study (MKin) in biological, behavioural, and socio-cultural research in Kinesiology.
We are proud to be part of a leading global university that is committed to providing an exceptional learning environment and to fostering global citizenship, a civil and sustainable society, and outstanding research.
