Bachelor of Science Kinesiology - Honours

Instructor teaching proper excercise form

High-achieving students in the B.Sc. Kinesiology (Major) program with a keen interest in research and who are considering graduate studies have the opportunity to transfer to the B.Sc. Kinesiology Honours program. Students in the Honours program pursue more advanced coursework resulting in a research project in their final year of study. To pursue this Honours program, students who are completing their U2 year of studies in the B.Sc. Kinesiology (Major) must secure an Honours Research Project Supervisor and must consult with their studentaffairs.kpe [at] mcgill.ca (KPE Student Advisor) to affect an intra-Faculty transfer to the B.Sc. Kinesiology Honours program.
