Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Kinesiology - Aging, Health and Well-Being

The Aging, Health and Well-being doctoral program (AHWB) is a collaborative program between Kinesiology, the School of Public Health and Health Systems, and the Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences.

It provides students with an interdisciplinary platform upon which to develop a broad understanding of issues related to the health and well-being of our aging population. The program affords the opportunity to cross departmental boundaries to access courses and resources including dissertation committee members who can add different perspectives to research problems.

Research interests of faculty members who participate in the collaborative program, as well as detailed course and program requirements are listed at the Aging, Health, and Well-being website.


Your graduate supervisor will be able to help you get oriented in the program, select courses, and serve on thesis committees. 

Students who wish to consider a change in supervisor should speak to the Kinesiology Associate Chair (Graduate). Students who change supervisors must fill out a Change of Supervisor Form
