Total transfer and prior learning credit into the Bachelor of Kinesiology degree must not exceed 90 credits. Notes: May be repeated for a maximum of 6 credits. These spinal manipulations adjust and put the spinal column and the spinal cord into alignment so pinched nerves that may be causing pain or headaches are relieved. Note 1: Any 300- and 400-level courses are acceptable for the remaining 10 upper-level credits, including additional KIN courses. Note 1: Students planning to enter into a teacher education program for the purpose of obtaining teacher certification in Secondary Physical Education must complete KIN 122, 222, 322, and 323. Students should plan accordingly. Note 2: Students who are intending to teach at the elementary, middle, or secondary level may require a second teachable Treatment Area. Please refer to the specific entrance requirements outlined above in Option 1 (Secondary school entrance) and Option 2 (University entrance). Applied Exercise Health Option – American College of Sports Medicine/National Strength and Conditioning Association Track: Kinesiology, B.S. They also have the option of minoring in Innovation Engineering. Students who do not have the stated prerequisite may not register in a course having these requirements without the permission of the instructor. However I know other kinesiologists who prefer this method as it frees up their other hand to do other things, such as scan lists to muscle test for, eg pointing to items on a restaurant menu, or a list of kinesiologists you are considering booking with to find which one may help you best.
It combines muscle monitoring with the principles of Chinese medicine to assess energy and body function, applying a range of gentle yet powerful healing techniques to improve health, wellbeing and vitality. Kinesiology uses muscle testing to identify imbalances in the body’s structural, chemical, emotional or other energy systems to establish the body’s healing needs and the identifies the adjustments needed to bring your body back into balance. You’ll also want to work on toning and stretching muscles that work hard during a golf game, like your legs and back. Examples include knee or ankle braces, artificial limbs, shoe insoles or back braces. Examples of such minors include those in Arts (see this section for a listing of Arts minors), Science (Biology for Kinesiology students, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics), Business Administration (see this section for the Business minor), and Criminal Justice. For examples of Arts extended minors, please see this section for the listing. For further details, see the Academic standing and undergraduate continuance section of the academic calendar.
See the Fees. Other Costs section. The final deadline for students who wish to attend the June Convocation ceremony is April 1 of each year, with all program requirements completed by the Winter semester grade deadline (see Important Registration Dates) of each year. Note: Students pursuing a Biology minor should be aware that PSYC 110 does not satisfy the requirements of that program. In order to complete the degree in a timely fashion, students wishing to combine the Bachelor of Kinesiology degree with any minor and/or Arts extended minor (except Biology extended minor) must seek approval of the appropriate program advisors. Students completing requirements for the Bachelor of Kinesiology may combine this with the requirements for any of the existing minors or Arts extended minors offered at UFV, with the exception of the Biology extended minor. May eventually lead to academic suspension from undergraduate studies at UFV. Students may receive credit for learning from previous studies or learning through experience. Students may only choose one specialization. The Pedagogy specialization provides preparation for those pursuing careers in instructional settings in both the public and private domain, such as graduate school, coaching, and recreational/leisure settings. Some graduates go on to medical school or pursue graduate study in other health-related disciplines.
The Active Health specialization provides preparation for students who are pursuing careers in health and wellness, specifically community health and fitness, athletic therapy, sports psychology, and fitness management and recreation, and those planning to continue onto graduate school. The Exercise Science specialization provides preparation for students who are pursuing careers as a practicing Kinesiologist or Exercise Specialist, those planning to go to graduate school, and/or those who are using their kinesiology degree in preparation for admittance to a professional program such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, massage therapy, medicine, or chiropractics. Note 3: Students who fail to declare a specialization by 60 credits will have registration in further courses blocked. Students in Good Academic Standing will have no registration limits placed on them. Failure to meet the minimum CGPA requirement will result in restrictions on registration. Students enrolled in undergraduate courses (courses numbered 100 or above) must maintain an undergraduate Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of at least 2.00 to remain enrolled in Good Academic Standing at UFV. In addition, a minimum CGPA of 2.00 must be maintained in the upper-level courses when considered separately. The Bachelor of Kinesiology program can be completed in four years of full-time study, with students taking 10 courses per calendar year.
