The Faculty of Kinesiology with the Faculty of Arts offers a five-year combined Bachelor of Kinesiology (Kinesiology)/Bachelor of Arts (Dance) 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, the requirements of each Faculty must be met. Failure to do so will result in a student being required to withdraw from the combined or separate programs. A student may elect to remain in the combined program or submit a Change of Program request through the online Student Centre via MyUofC to remain in either of the two separate degree programs.


Students must adhere to the regulations and satisfy the graduation requirements of both Faculties. The combined degree requires at least 150 units and the successful completion of both degree requirements. A maximum of 60 units at the junior level, may be used towards the Kinesiology degree requirements.

The Faculty of Kinesiology requirements are as follows:

  • 54 units from the Kinesiology Core as listed in 4.1 of the Faculty of Kinesiology section of the Calendar.
  • 21 units of Kinesiology options at the 300 level or above.

Refer to section 4.13.3 Combined BKin (Kinesiology)/BA (Dance) for BA Dance program requirements.
