The Sport Sciences Certificate is designed for students who have interest in studying courses with a major focus on scientific inquiry related to sport. This includes the application of scientific principles to improve performance, biomechanics, nutrition, management and policy in sport, as well as studies related to the psychology of sport, and sport culture. These sports application courses address topics including the science, theory, and practice of sport in local, national and global contexts. Students will learn about the increasingly important role of kinesiology and physical education in providing leadership, opportunities and advocacy in sports-related fields.
