MKin - Clinical and Applied Movement Science

The University of Regina’s Faculty of Kinesiology & Health Studies is pleased to announce that it will offer a unique practicum-based Masters degree beginning in the Fall 2018 semester.

The Master of Kinesiology (MKin) specializes in Clinical and Applied Movement Science and will provide students a unique opportunity to gain advanced knowledge and experience through evidence-based teaching and applied engagement.

“This practicum-based degree is the only one in Canada that focuses specifically on clinical and applied movement sciences. The interdisciplinary skill-set acquired by our students will be unprecedented leading to greater employment and mentorship opportunities,” said Dr. Darren Candow, the Faculty of Kinesiology & Health Studies’ Associate Dean of Graduate Studies and Research.

The program includes eight core classes focused specifically on clinical and applied movement sciences:
-Psychology of Human Movement
-Ethics in Kinesiology and Health
-Clinical and Applied Exercise Physiology
-Pathophysiology and Metabolism
-Applied Motor Learning and Motor Control
-Biomechanics and Movement Analysis
-Ergonomics
-Physiology of Aging.

In addition to those eight classes, students will complete two practicum placements.

Funding opportunities, including University Teaching Fellowships, are available to qualified students.

Admission to the MKin is competitive, with a maximum of 15 students accepted for each fall intake. A Bachelor of Kinesiology (or equivalent with a minimum grade point average of 70.00%) is required for admission. Meeting those requirements does not guarantee acceptance. The deadline for applications is June 1, 2018. For more information regarding the program and application process, CLICK HERE.
