Honours Conversion

Students who have graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Kinesiology) degree can apply for the Honours Conversion program. Before taking KINE 4901.03 and 4902.03, they must have satisfied the requirements for the Honours Program. With the approval of the Honours Coordinator, it may be possible to take certain prerequisite courses concurrently with KINE 4901 and 4902. Application is made through the Honours Coordinator (details in the BSc (Kinesiology) with Honours section). Acceptance into the Honours Conversion program can only be considered provided a faculty member has agreed to supervise the project.
