Kinesiology is an academic discipline that involves the study of physical activity and its impact on health, society, and quality of life. It includes areas of study such as exercise science, athletic training, socio-cultural analyses of sports and society, sport and exercise psychology, fitness leadership, physical education-teacher education, and pre-professional training for physical therapy, occupational therapy, medicine, and other health-related fields.

The Kinesiology Diploma program helps students build skills that they can apply to a variety of career options in fitness, recreation, sport, education, and health. Course credits transfer towards Bachelor's degree programs in British Columbia and elsewhere.

Students develop skills for general employability and academic success including information literacy, written and oral communication, numeracy and computer skills, critical and creative thinking, leadership and interpersonal skills, and professional skills.

Students may become eligible to apply for industry credentials during or after program completion. External agencies may require students to complete additional written examinations and/or practical competency evaluations and pay additional fees.
