Kinesiology, Co-op

ElenaWhy did you choose your program?

I've always loved learning about the human body, especially as a lover of sports. I knew I wanted to go into the health field and when I found out part of Kinesiology was looking at injuries and rehabilitation, I was sold.

What I like best about my program

Kinesiology is such an interdisciplinary program. In the first two years, we get exposed to so many different subjects such as biomechanics, exercise physiology, neuroscience, and so much more. The freedom you then get in the upper years really gives you the opportunity to explore the subject areas you want to learn about in more detail.
