Program Requirements

Revision, July 2012. Start of revision.

The McGill Bachelor of Science (Kinesiology) program received accreditation from the Canadian Council of University Physical Education and Kinesiology Administrators (CCUPEKA) in April 2007.

The Honours version of the B.Sc.(Kinesiology) is a 90-credit program. Students who have not completed Quebec CEGEP, French Baccalaureate, International Baccalaureate, or at least one year of university studies are normally enrolled in a four-year B.Sc.(Kinesiology) program, which includes a 30-credit Freshman year for a total of 120 credits.

The Kinesiology - Honours program offers particularly strong students aspiring to continue their studies at the graduate level the opportunity to pursue more advanced coursework. The program requires the completion of a research project under the direction of a professor during the final year. To qualify for the Honours program, students must obtain a CGPA of 3.3 after two years in Kinesiology and must retain this CGPA until graduation.

Graduation Requirement:
Prior to graduation, students are required to show proof of certification in Standard Level Safety Oriented First Aid/Level C in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, or equivalencies.

Freshman Program

29-30 credits of basic science courses depending on the Fall term MATH course selected.

Students admitted from CEGEP or with other Advanced Standing should have equivalencies for these courses to be exempt from Freshman program requirements.
