The Faculty of Kinesiology with the Faculty of Arts offers a five-year combined Bachelor of Arts (Dance)/Bachelor of Kinesiology (Kinesiology) degree program. The program requires careful selection of courses to complete all requirements of the two Faculties. Interested students are urged to contact the Advising Offices of the two faculties for advice in choosing their first-year courses.


Applicants to the combined program must satisfy the admission requirements of both Faculties. Students are strongly advised to enter the combined program directly in first year.

Once accepted to the combined program, students may elect to remain in it or switch to either of the two separate degree programs, as long as the requirements of each Faculty continue to be met. Failure to meet requirements will result in a student being required to withdraw from the combined or separate programs.


Students must adhere to the regulations and satisfy the graduation requirements of both Faculties. The combined degree requires at least 150 units (25.0 full-course equivalents) and the successful completion of both degree requirements. A maximum of 60 units (10.0 full-course equivalents) may be at the junior level.

The Faculty of Kinesiology requirements are as follows:

  • 54 units (9.0 full-course equivalents) from the Kinesiology Core as listed in 4.1 of the Faculty of Kinesiology section of the Calendar.
  • 21 units (3.5 full-course equivalents) of senior Kinesiology options.

Dance requirements are listed in 4.58.3 Combined BA (Dance)/BKin (Kinesiology) of the Faculty of Arts section of this Calendar.
