Honours programs are offered in all majors.


Applicants to an Honours program must have completed a minimum of 90 units 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 completed 90 units (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 590 (Interpretation of Research and Research Project) is added to the course requirements for each Major in an Honours program. Enrolment in Kinesiology 590 is limited and requires consent of the department. Registration in Kinesiology 590 is contingent on the student having made suitable arrangements with an eligible a supervisor in the Faculty of Kinesiology, as well as confirmation of the availability of resources (laboratory space, equipment, etc.) required to complete the research project.

1. Once admitted to the 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 of "D" or "D+" grades.

2. To graduate with Honours, a student will be required to present a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.30 over the last 90 units and a minimum GPA of 3.30 in all courses offered by the Faculty of Kinesiology. For more information refer to 3.5 Graduation.
