Kinesiology is a science that studies the human body, and how it moves and functions. The current interest in this discipline reflects a growing understanding about how exercise affects overall health.
The Bachelor of Kinesiology program emphasizes applied bioscience courses with an emphasis on fitness and athletic performance, exercise prescription and programming, the development of research skills, as well as behavioural and socio-cultural aspects of kinesiology, and the application of theoretical knowledge in laboratory.
Students can apply after first year into the Co-op stream. They would complete the same academic course work as the BKin majors but would have three four month work terms during the spring/summer of second, third and fourth year.
The Department of Kinesiology at Brock is fully invested in researching and teaching all aspects of human movement.
The University offer courses that allow students to create, integrate and apply knowledge from the biosciences, social sciences, and humanities in the transdisciplinary study of human movement across the lifespan.
The University has high expectations for student performance which has a combined emphasis on challenging intellectual/creative work and academic effort.
The University offers enriched learning experiences gained through interactions with faculty members both within and outside the traditional classroom environment.
If you are considering a career in kinesiology or physical education, we have numerous experiential education opportunities that can help you develop the skills and competencies you will need to achieve your goals. We also have an active Kinesiology Student Association that will allow you to socialize, become involved with campus activities, participate in charity fund raising, and more.

Brock University is located in the heart of the Niagara Peninsula, home of natural beauty, amazing history, and world-famous attractions. Explore and enjoy wine country, arts, sports, recreational trails, festivals and more, only an hour from Toronto and just across the border from Buffalo.
In the late 1950s, there was growing public discussion about how Niagara should have its own university. Its residents wanted young people to get a good education without having to leave the area.
The grassroots sentiment became a movement when, in November 1957, the Allanburg Women’s Institute asked the Ontario government to “favourably consider the placing of a university in the Niagara Peninsula.”
Momentum grew. By fall 1962, the Brock Founders Committee was incorporated. It received approval to create a new university, then developed an administrative and academic plan. Then it began raising money.
After years of meetings and fundraising, Brock opened in September 1964. It had 127 students who attended class in a refurbished refrigeration factory at the foot of the Niagara Escarpment in St. Catharines. In 1966, the landmark Schmon Tower was completed, and faculties began moving “up the hill” to the University’s permanent home atop the Niagara Escarpment.
For the next 30 years, Brock sent thousands of graduates on to successful careers. It built a name for its personal quality of teaching afforded by attentive faculty and controlled class sizes. As the new millennium dawned, enrolment soared. Brock transformed from an undergraduate institute to a comprehensive university with flourishing research, graduate and doctoral programs.
The campus steadily expanded to keep pace with the demand for a Brock education. It’s a pattern that continues with the construction of world-class research labs, a landmark fine arts complex and an international centre.
Brock serves its community as a cultural, academic and recreational centre, bringing excellent facilities to the people who created the University all those years ago. We are committed to building our community and to fostering an environment that serves students and neighbours.
