SECTION 4: Program and Graduation Requirements SECTION 4: Program and Graduation Requirements

Degree Requirements and Course Selection

It is the student’s responsibility to have read the Undergraduate Academic Calendar carefully, and to know all relevant university and faculty regulations, policies and practices. Completion of degree require­ments is the responsibility of the student. Returning students should con­tact their advisor if they have any questions concerning their curriculum.

The four degree programs have a base of shared introductory core courses, as well as shared upper level courses. Shared core courses are intended to ensure stu­dents recognize the interconnections across our Faculty and its related fields of practice, and to facilitate the professional education of students.

In Fall 2017 the Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management is introducing an updated curriculum that will include new program requirements for all students admitted in Year 1 entering the faculty through Direct Entry admission. In Fall 2018 and later, all students admitted through Year 1 Direct Entry and Year 2 Advanced Entry admission will follow the updated curriculum program requirements for each undergraduate degree program.

4.1 Program Requirements: Bachelor of Kinesiology

(Students admitted Year 2 Advanced Entry in September 2017 or earlier)

Program and Graduation Requirements: Bachelor of Kinesiology

To graduate with a four-year Bachelor of Kinesiology degree, a student must have passed the 120 credit hours of the program outlined below and must have achieved a Degree Grade Point Average (DGPA) of 2.00 with a minimum grade of “C” in all Faculty-required courses.

A maximum of 158 credit hours may be attempted in order to obtain the 120 credit hours required for graduation with the Bachelor of Kinesiology degree.

4.2 Program Requirements: Bachelor of Kinesiology - Athletic Therapy

(Students admitted Year 2 Advanced Entry in September 2017 or earlier)

Program and Graduation Requirements: Bachelor of Kinesiology - Athletic Therapy

To graduate with a four-year Bachelor of Kinesiology – Athletic Therapy degree, a student must have passed the 126 credit hours of the program outlined below and must have achieved a Degree Grade Point Average (DGPA) of 2.00 with a minimum grade of “C” in all Faculty-required courses.

A maximum of 166 credit hours may be attempted in order to obtain the 126 credit hours required for graduation with the Bachelor of Kinesiology - Athletic Therapy.

Students are expected to progress through the Athletic Therapy program as outlined below. It is strongly recommended that courses be completed in the sequence and year indicated, otherwise an additional year may be re­quired.

Successful completion of BIOL 1020 and BIOL 1030, with a minimum grade of “C”, or BIOL 1000 and BIOL 1010, with a minimum average grade of “C+” is a re­quirement for admission to the Athletic Therapy Program.

Valid Health Care Provider CPR and Standard First Aid certification are required before the beginning of each term of registration (if lapsed, students must re-certify). Each year while in the program, Athletic Therapy students must also register as members with both the Manitoba Athletic Therapists Association (MATA) and Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA).

Athletic Therapy Practica (KIN 3912, KIN 3914 & KIN 4910)

Students in the Athletic Therapy Program will be required to complete sev­eral hours of clinical and field (sports team) experiences on campus and in the community during their degree. These experiences pro­vide opportunities to apply the knowledge and skills students obtain via their educational curriculum, in a practical hands-on manner, and there­fore enhance their preparation for the Canadian Athletic Therapy Associa­tion (CATA) examinations. Students must successfully com­plete the previous year’s courses and be registered in all of the present year’s courses in order to register in each practicum (KIN 3912, KIN 3914 & KIN 4910).
