The Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies offers the Bachelor of Kinesiology (BKin), the Bachelor of Sport and Recreation Studies (BSRS) and the Bachelor of Health Studies (BHS).
Recently, the Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies has undertaken a comprehensive review and renewal of its current program offerings with the goal of better meeting the needs of our students and the communities they serve. Wherever possible, accreditation of programming and certification of students was paramount in our planning. (See also: Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (www.csep.ca); CCUPEKA (www.ccupeka.ca) – BKIN; COSMA (www.cosmaweb.org) – BSRS – Sport and Recreation Management; NCTRC (www.nctrc.org) – BSRS – Therapeutic Recreation.)
The well-respected Fieldwork program continues to play an important role in the renewed curriculum. The program provides an opportunity for students to apply what they have learned and to gain valuable experience prior to entering the job market. For those individuals interested in traditional graduate studies or more academic careers, the Honours program will continue to provide an excellent training ground.
The Bachelor of Health Studies is a joint degree between the Faculties of Kinesiology and Health Studies, and Arts, in partnership with First Nations University of Canada. It aims to provide students with an integrated understanding of the ways in which social, economic and cultural determinants of health shape individual beliefs, attitudes and practices, which in turn affect how we function physiologically and biologically.
The faculty is excited to have entered a partnership agreement with Karunya University in Coimbatore, India. The agreement establishes the first Bachelor of Kinesiology in all of India at Karunya University. Students complete two years toward the BKin at Karunya University, and then will transfer to the University of Regina to complete the final two years of study in Human Kinetics and/or Gerontology. When the program is at capacity, we anticipate up to 30 students from India studying at the University of Regina each fall as a result of this partnership, beginning in Fall 2014
The Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies at the University of Regina believes that a well-conceived professional Fieldwork Program is essential for the facilitation of learning and personal growth of undergraduate students. Experiential learning is one of the critical steps a student takes in preparing for a career. Hence, the ‘placement’ of a student in a supervised educational experience is an integral part of a student’s education in which a student may observe, inquire, participate, contribute, and learn.
KHS 300 (Pre-Fieldwork Seminar) is designed to provide an in-depth overview of the Fieldwork Program. If the student wishes to complete their Fieldwork requirement outside the province of Saskatchewan, it is highly recommended that the student complete KHS 300 two to four semesters prior to registering for KHS 400 (Fieldwork- BKin and BSRS) or HS 448 (Fieldwork - BHS) in order to allow for enough preparatory time.
KHS 400 (BKin and BSRS) and HS 448 (BHS) are designed to assist the student with the transition from the academic present to the professional future. It is an opportunity to engage in the practical application of theories in a real world environment. Fieldwork is considered to be a senior part of the academic program and must be completed within 12 months of completion of KHS 300 (Pre-Fieldwork Seminar). Students must have their major required courses completed (if applicable) before beginning Fieldwork.
As part of the curriculum review process, the faculty wanted to have a mechanism within the fieldwork credit hours to recognize the effort and contributions made by the student. In order to accomplish this, the fieldwork requirements for the BKin and BSRS have been changed to be 9 credit hours graded pass/fail with feedback and evaluations made by both the agency and fieldwork coordinator, and adding a numerically graded component – KHS 405 (Fieldwork Project) – worth 6 credit hours. The total experience remains a 15 credit hour, full semester placement; KHS 400 and KHS 405 must be taken concurrently. At present, the BHS fieldwork will remain at 15 credit hours, pass/fail.
Students completing both the BHS and the BKin may be permitted to use HS 448 (Fieldwork) to meet the requirements of KHS 400 (Fieldwork), provided that the integrity of both programs is maintained. Students must be admitted to the BHS, regardless of whether it is listed as their primary program of study. This provision is subject to prior approval by the Fieldwork Coordinator.
A student required to discontinue from their placement (terminated by the agency or fieldwork coordinator) will receive a grade of 'F' for KHS 400 (and KHS 405 if applicable)/HS 448, and may be required to seek out additional services identified by the Fieldwork Coordinator/ Associate Dean (Undergraduate) that may assist in their personal and/or professional development. The earliest the student will be allowed to repeat KHS 400 (and KHS 405 if applicable)/HS 448 will be the next scheduled semester (pending an approved placement).
If students can show that they have substantial and relevant work experience, they can apply to the coordinator to waive HS 448 (Fieldwork). Instead they will take HS 449 (Health Field Experience Paper), and will substitute 12 credit hours of courses approved by the coordinator(s).
|Spring/ Summer and Fall||March 25|
Students not possessing the required PGPA and major GPA by the registration deadline normally will not be allowed to register for fieldwork in the subsequent semester. The rationale for this is that a student may be holding a spot with an agency preventing a fully-qualified student from accessing it, and that the agency may be disadvantaged if the student doesn’t meet the average requirement and they are without a planned intern for the semester.
For more information on the Fieldwork Program please refer to the Fieldwork section of www.uregina.ca/kinesiology
Please be aware that, DEPENDING ON THE QUALIFICATION OF THE INSTRUCTOR, students may be able to qualify for certification as outlined below:
Certification from outside agencies MAY be available for students who successfully complete one or more of the following courses:
KHS 182 (National Coaching Certification Program Introduction to Competition, Part A and B.)
KIN 350 (KHS 372) (Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology-Certified Personal Trainer and Saskatchewan Park Recreation Association – Basic Fitness Theory)
KIN 355 (KHS 373) and KIN 373 (KHS 383) (National Coaching Certification Program Level 3 Theory – Note: students MUST have National Coaching Certification Program Level 1 and 2 Theory or Introduction to Competition, Part A and B in order to qualify for Level 3 Theory)
KIN 450 (Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology-Certified Exercise Physiologist)
Students should consult with the instructor before courses begin (or when they register) to determine if certification is an option.
Certification by the National Council on Therapeutic Recreation Certification can be obtained by students graduating with a BSRS, major in Therapeutic Recreation (THRC) provided the courses recommended by NCTRC have been included in the student’s program. By nature of the courses required in the BSRS – THRC major, students will not have any difficulty meeting these requirements. For the most current certification standards, visit www.nctrc.org .
