Our programs offer you the opportunity to study human movement from a range of perspectives. Whether you are interested in the mechanics of movement, physiological responses to exercise, health promotion, the psychology of sport or the effects of biological and socio-cultural factors on health, our Master’s and Doctorate-level programs will challenge you intellectually.
You will work with internationally-recognized researchers and have opportunities to collaborate with them on exciting multi-disciplinary projects such as Revved Up, an exercise program assisting people with mobility impairments. The School restricts the number of students in our program, as small classes ensure focused support from supervisors and private workspace for each student. The School moved into its state of the art new building in January 2010.
Application Deadline: March 1 to qualify for internal funding.
Applications will be considered until the program is full.
"It’s a very rich learning environment. As a student, I’ve really appreciated the chance to be surrounded by people who are studying different, but related, things. It really broadens my horizons. I’ve traveled throughout North America and Europe. It’s exposed me to high-calibre research and ideas."
We have strong ties with other Queen’s departments, including Gender Studies, Mechanical and Materials Engineering, Sociology, Education, Cultural Studies, Community Health and Epidemiology, and the School of Nursing. Students may also pursue research work at Kingston General Hospital or the Human Mobility Research Centre.
We recommend you contact a faculty member in your area of interest prior to beginning the application process to determine whether that faculty member is accepting students for the upcoming academic cycle. Faculty member profiles are available on the School website.
