Program Description:

The Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management (FKRM) offers two thesis-based degree programs: A Master of Science (Kinesiology and Recreation) and a Master of Arts (Kinesiology and Recreation). Our graduate degree programs are highly competitive and are considered limited enrollment programs. Every year we admit a small number of high-caliber students to ensure each student receives the best one-on-one supervision possible. At no time in our history has research in the fields of applied health, leisure and human performance been more important for improving quality of life. Researchers in the Faculty, who conduct their studies in the one-of-a-kind Health, Leisure & Human Performance Research Institute, are currently conducting cutting-edge research into these complex issues. Our many and diverse laboratory environments, as well as our collaborations with other Faculties and with community groups, provide prospective graduate students with research experiences that range from the fundamental and theoretical, to the applied, and even to the "natural experiment" environment that our community collaborations involve. Our Masters students win scholarships and awards, work on student research assistantships, speak at workshops and conferences, are published in journals, and work with world-class researchers and advisors in the labs in the Research Institute. Best of all, they get a valuable and competitive degree from a Faculty with a strong reputation and a long success story.
