Trent’s four-year B.Sc.Kin. degree focuses on human performance and function across the life span. Student's are encouraged to get hands-on – in the lab and out in the community – working with everyone from high-performing athletes to senior citizens.
As a Kinesiology student at Trent University, your education includes hands-on learning experiences to enhance the discovery and investigation of human movement. Trent’s brand new exercise physiology lab, established in partnership with Trent Athletics, features leading equipment to provide students with the ultimate learning environment for fostering skills and advancing the science of human movement. Here you will learn about exercise prescription, study the effects of aging, and examine firsthand how exercise can impact muscle, bone and cardiovascular health.
Students gain the knowledge and skills to become a kinesiology practitioner, able to prescribe individualized exercise programs to improve or maintain the health, functional capacity, and well-being of a range of healthy and clinical populations. Students in this program will have the opportunity to pursue placement opportunities in their fourth year of study. Kinesiology is a regulated health profession in Ontario; this degree provides the skills and knowledge to function as a health professional and write the competency exam to become a registered kinesiologist (R.Kin.).
