Leaders in movement science

With the establishment of the world's first department of kinesiology, the University of Waterloo was instrumental in defining the science of human movement and continues to lead the evolution of this exciting discipline.

Through understanding the cellular to societal implications of physical activity, nutrition and lifestyle, our research, academic programs and services aim to optimize health, prevent injury and illness, and extend the years of high quality life.
