"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.
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.
