Master of Kinesiology

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. No research is involved: This is the main difference between the MKin and MA/MSc programs. The most popular stream is Coaching Science and the program contains approximately 18-20 graduate students each year. The average time to completion is 1 year (30-credit program). For more than 20 years, the Coaching Science program has supported the coaching careers of many different sport coaches by enhancing their theoretical development and practical growth. The internship program allows the students to exploit their coaching philosophy and challenge their skills.

The Coaching Science stream in the MKIN program prepares students for employment in coaching at various levels (high school, club, varsity, strength and conditioning) or in some specific cases to pursue further studies in a PhD program. Recent graduates have taken positions as head or assistant coaches in varsity programs, community programs, and the private sector as strength and conditioning coaches. Graduates from this program have also become Program Managers/Directors of Athletics and Recreation in their respective institutions.

What makes the program unique?

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.
