Athletic Therapy and Strength & Conditioning

A collaboration between Queen's Athletics and Recreation and the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies provides students in the Kinesiology or Physical Health Education programs a unique three-year, mini-stream of study that allows selected students the opportunity to explore either the field of Athletic Therapy or the field of Strength and Conditioning.

Each mini-stream allows students an enriched learning experience. In addition to required theory courses, students will work with varsity athletes and teams acquiring valuable skills, applied knowledge and invaluable experience. Therefore, the course components will require a strong commitment from students as they will become an valued member of the Inter-University Sport Program. Students will apply at the end of first year for one of the twenty places in the Athletic Therapy mini-stream or for one of the twenty places in the Strength and Conditioning mini-stream.

Exercise, Disability & Aging

Revved Up, an adapted community-based exercise program for individuals with mobility impairments and intellectual disabilities, was established to meet a service gap in the Kingston community. In partnership with Revved Up, the School of Kinesiology and Health studies offers a unique, two-year mini-stream of study that provides students, starting in their third year, with the opportunity to explore community-based programming for older adults and persons with disabilities.

Research Mini-Stream

The Research Mini-Stream offers an intensive three-year immersion experience in research. Students interested in pursuing graduate programs will be able to differentiate themselves through this unique opportunity.
