Program Highlights

The Human Kinetics Diploma – Exercise Science stream develops students’ knowledge in the biological and physical sciences and applies it to the study of human movement.

Discover the hidden science behind physical movement and learn more about the human body and its relationship to exercise. Our Exercise Science stream prepares you for a career in exercise physiology, biomechanics, motor control, sport psychology and exercise management. It's suitable for students planning to transfer to UBC to study for a BA in Kinesiology. Many other schools accept our courses for transfer as well.

  • Effectively communicate - in written and oral forms - using appropriate health and Human Kinetics terminology where applicable
  • Describe how physical, social and psychological factors impact the health of an individual and community
  • Collect, evaluate and interpret health and Human Kinetics research data
  • Assess, design and implement health, fitness and educational programs
  • Utilize technology to analyze heath and human movement
  • Demonstrate professional behavior and ethics
