Program Overview
The foundation of our new Ph.D. program in Kinesiology is a community-based focus recognized as ensuring the wellbeing of both individuals and the collective at the local, national, and international levels. Graduates will be prepared to provide the resources necessary to sustain the community and will be able to supply current, novel ideas, and knowledge. This community-based focus in a Kinesiology program is not represented in any other existing program in Canada. Students will be required to complete four courses, one of which is a community-based internship. The internship will encourage the integration of our students into ongoing community initiatives, enhance responsibility for meeting the needs of others while improving overall well-being of Canadians, and encourage students to utilize previously acquired skills, while gaining new skills, appropriate to their internship setting.

Academic Goal
The main goal of the Ph.D. program in Kinesiology is to allow students interested in the movement science or socio-cultural aspects of Kinesiology to develop excellence in designing, conducting and disseminating research knowledge to the broader community including: the workplace; sport, teaching, and leisure environments; and exercise, physical activity, and rehabilitation settings.

Competitive Financial Support
In addition to other sources of funding, all doctoral students will be guaranteed Graduate Assistantships of no fewer than the equivalent of seven full terms of support.

Projected Enrolment
The projected enrolment for September 2013, and each of the next four years, is four students. Projected steady-state student enrolment for the PhD Program in Kinesiology is sixteen doctoral students.
