This program provides students with the theoretical, practical, and experiential foundations for leadership in physical activity, in schools, and in other settings such as recreation and coaching. Pedagogy majors learn the skills and knowledge required to present physical activities to clients of all age and developmental levels, provide leadership in health- and fitness-related matters, and communicate the theoretical aspects of kinesiology to their client base, both within the educational system and in the community. Students acquire a foundation in the kinesiology discipline including growth and development and the psychological aspects related to human movement, in addition to learning theory and practice throughout their program. Leadership concepts inherent in the pedagogy program provides students with the expertise to help others learn concepts, physical skills and activities that can be used in a wide variety of life situations including leisure and recreation, fitness and rehabilitation, competitive sports, and elite personal challenges. The Pedagogy program also seeks to promote the benefits of physical activity on the body and mind, and makes a deliberate attempt to influence people’s values towards incorporating activity into their personal lifestyle. Students graduate with a Bachelor of Kinesiology.
