Kinesiology 2011

"Oh the directions they go!"  Read about the career plans of Kinesiology students as submitted by them at the time of graduation.

After 3 years in the BSc Kinesiology program, I will be attending the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. At CMCC, I will be a student of a four-year Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree program that emphasizes the importance of evidence-based research in both classroom and clinical settings. Upon graduation from CMCC, I plan to open my own practice while continuing to educate clients and instill the value associated with living a healthy and active lifestyle.
K.L.M. - BSC GEN KINE

After the completion of my winter term exams at Queen's, I began class in May at the University of Ottawa in their Second Entry - Bachelor of Science in Nursingprogram. I will graduate in the spring of 2013 and look forward to carrying my love of health promotion and the benefits of exercise with me into my future career as a nurse!
K.Q. -  BSCH SSP KINE

After graduating with a B.Sc. in Kinesiology this spring, I will be attending the University of Western Ontario for an M.Sc. in Clinical Anatomy. The program is designed to meet the increasing need for persons capable of teaching clinically-oriented cadaveric gross anatomy for medical, dental and professional health science programs. Upon completion of this masters, I intend to obtain my Ph.D., while pursuing a career in academia and research.
L.V.H. - BSCH SSP KINE

In February of 2012, I will be attending the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand to pursue a Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning. I hope to remain in New Zealand to teach and coach at the high school level for a few years before returning to Ontario. I am much looking forward to the challenges and adventures that await me overseas.

Upon completion of my four years at Queen's, I decided to take next year off from school.  I plan on exploring some career options, travelling, and looking into school for the following year. Some of the programs I have considered are Ottawa University's course-based Master of Human Kinetics in Intervention and Consultation and Humber's Exercise Science and Lifestyle Management postgraduate certificate.
M.P. - BSCH SSP KINE

After graduating from Queen's I will come back as a graduate student to obtain a Master's in Public Health. This is a 16-month professional degree that provides students with a practicum experience and the skills to work as generalists in the public health community. Upon completion I plan to enter the workforce on both a national and international front.
