Kinesiology (MKin) - Master of Kinesiology

   
Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Education
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Kinesiotherapy/Kinesiotherapist
Description The Master of Kinesiology (MKin) is a non-thesis (course-based) degree with potential areas of study, including Socio-Managerial, Natural/Physical Science, Behavioural Science and Coaching Science. The most popular stream is Coaching Science. No research is involved. This is the main difference between the MKin and MA/MSc programs. The Coaching Science program contains approximately 18-20 graduate students each year, and the average time to completion is 1 year (30-credit program). For more than 20 years, our program has supported the coaching careers of many different sport coaches by enhancing not only their theoretical development but also their practical growth: our internship program allows the students to exploit their coaching philosophy and challenge their skills. The Coaching Science stream in the MKin program is extremely diverse with more than 30% of graduate students coming from many different countries. This international, collaborative environment fosters the exploration of best practices and encourages the students to seek personal growth through interaction and discussion. We are a small enough cohort that students and faculty are able to enjoy regular one-on-one contact. Additionally, the programs’ flexibility leverages on the wide selection of seminar-based courses and independent directed studies. Lastly, the various streams offer the graduate student the opportunity to enhance their expertise in the interdisciplinary nature of kinesiology.
