Leadership Opportunities

Acadia's Bachelor of Kinesiology and Bachelor of Kinesiology with Honours programs are accredited by "CCUPEKA", the Canadian Council of University Physical Education and Kinesiology Administrators. CCUPEKA is the major academic body for Kinesiology in Canada and is responsible for the nationally recognized program of accreditation of university programs in the discipline. The degree program requires students to complete core courses in each of these sub-disciplines, and to complete complementary courses from the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Pure and Applied Sciences.


Additionally, the degree program provides an opportunity for students to elect courses which represent an in-depth interest in a single sub discipline, an interest in a professional application or an interest in Kinesiology in its broadest sense. Acadia provides many opportunities for students to gain practical experience in research, leadership and instruction, management, sports rehabilitation, etc., and encourages students to take advantage of these opportunities.

The School provides a variety of research and service programs in which students are encouraged to participate. These programs provide, for example, professional leadership experiences in physical activity and outdoor recreation programs, fitness classes, fitness testing, the Kinder-Skills Motor Development Program, and the Sensory Motor Instructional Leadership Experience (S.M.I.L.E.) Program. In addition, students may have opportunities to serve as Sport Rehabilitation Assistants, Laboratory Assistants, or Research Assistants. These programs, together with a close association with Community Development and Kinesiology professionals, and the Department of Varsity Athletics, provide students with a number of opportunities to gain valuable experience during their undergraduate years.
