The course-based Master of Science in Kinesiology is a program for those that are interested in undertaking a more applied, evidence-based pathway that will add value to their credentials both academically and experientially. The program provides professional training, clinical skills upgrading, and research opportunities for current and future practitioners of Kinesiology. The combination of online and on-campus courses gives students the option to live in Thunder Bay or to live in an alternate location and attend the Thunder Bay campus to complete the practical courses. This distance-friendly MSc degree offers students the opportunity to study from home and still engage with professors and peers. The format of course delivery may also allow students to maintain employment while completing their studies.
