Honours programs are offered in all majors.


Applicants to an Honours program must have completed at least 90 units (15.0 full-course equivalents) by the term in which they enter the Honours program. The completed units must include a junior level Statistics course, and a cumulative GPA of at least 3.30 over the 90 units (15.0 full-course equivalents) (with a minimum GPA of 3.30 in all Kinesiology courses). These grade point averages must be maintained in order to retain Honours standing.

Students are strongly encouraged to consult with the Faculty's Advising Office prior to application.


Enrolment in Kinesiology 490 (Interpretation of Research and Research Project) is added to the course requirements for each Major in an Honours program. Enrolment in Kinesiology 490 is limited to 20 students. Registration in Kinesiology 490 is contingent on the student having made suitable arrangements with an eligible thesis supervisor, as well as the availability of the resources (laboratory space, equipment, etc.) needed to complete the thesis.

To graduate with Honours, a student will be required to present a minimum GPA of 3.30 over the entire program and an average of at least 3.30 in all courses offered by the Faculty of Kinesiology.

1. To remain in an Honours program a student must maintain a GPA of at least 3.30 in each academic year. The following circumstances will normally result in a student being required to withdraw from the Honours program:

(a) Any "F" grades obtained in the final two years of the program.

(b) The accumulation of more than 12 units (2.0 full-course equivalents) of "D" or "D+" grades throughout the program.

2. Honours students must submit a written report annually to the Associate Dean (Academic) by October 15.

3. Honours students must complete a minimum of 45 units (7.5 full-course equivalents) at the senior level.
