 Graduate studies at the forefront of health research 

University of Waterloo Kinesiology was the first and is now one of the most established departments of its kind in the world.

Spanning the disciplines of neuroscience, biomechanics and physiology and nutrition, our research on human health and movement ranges from cellular work that examines the mechanisms of movement, illness and injury, to exploring movement behaviour in the context of society.
