Physical Health Education 2010

"Oh the directions they go!" Read about the career plans of our Physical and Health Education students as submitted by them at the time of their graduation.

  • BPHEH SPF PHED:  Honours, four-year program
  • BPHE SPF:  Concurrent progam plus a BSc, BSc (Honours), BA or BA (Honours) degree program
  • BPHE SSP: Concurrent progam with a specialization in teaching plus a BSc, BSc (Honours), BA or BA (Honours) degree program 

Note: In 2010-11, fifteen BPHE graduates from Spring 2010 returned to Queen's as follows: four students entered an MSC in Kinesiology & Studies; three students entered an MSC in Rehabilitation Therapy - one in Occupational Therapy and two in Physiotherapy; seven students entered a BED program at the Faculty of Education; and, one student returned to do an additional BSCH program in Environmental Sciences with a general concentration in Life Sciences.

In September 2010, I will be attending the University of British Columbia for my Masters of Science in the School of Human Kinetics. I will be working with Dr. Mark Beauchamp studying Sport and Excercise Psychology. At this point I am unsure of what the next step will be, but I hope to continue working with children and spending time outdoors.
