Human Kinetics Diploma - Exercise Science
Faculty of Global & Community Studies
School of Human Kinetics
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.
