To be admitted, students should normally hold an appropriate Bachelor's degree at the honours level, or its equivalent, with at least a B+ or 75% standing in the last three years of a four year degree program. Students entering the MHK Program will normally hold a 4-year degree in a Human Kinetics Field (e.g., Physical and Health Education; Kinesiology; Sports Psychology) or equivalent. Candidates who have graduated from a three year degree program in a related discipline may be admitted to a qualifying year. Candidates with an honours degree in a related field such as Life Sciences, Sports Administration, Nursing Science, Rehabilitation Therapy, Sociology, Psychology, Physiology, Mechanical Engineering, Biology and Biochemistry to name a few, may be admitted to the MHK program. However, such candidates may be required to enroll in undergraduate courses in the School of Human Kinetics to round out their academic thesis preparation if deemed necessary by the admissions committee (students will be informed of this decision before being admitted to the program).
