Kinesiology - Neuro-Motor Psychology & Motor Learning

Program Information
Faculty: Graduate Studies
Degree: Doctorate
Field of Study: Kinesiology and Exercise ScienceKinesiotherapy/KinesiotherapistPhysiological Psychology/Psychobiology
Description Kinesiology is not just the study of movement. We are the length and breadth of the human condition, from the joy of competition, to the steps taken by cancer patients on their road back to wellness. We are in schools encouraging healthier habits and in labs researching the mysteries of why one child becomes obese while another doesn’t. Our graduate students are mentored by some of the top professors and researchers in the field in their original investigations, with the goal to advance the study of kinesiology, and to create leaders whose work will have an impact on society. Sharing knowledge is vital, and we work closely with other faculties, like the biomedical researchers in the Schulich School of Engineering and the mental health researchers in the Cumming School of Medicine.
