Sport and Physical Education (124.5 credits)
This program provides students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills essential to sport and physical education activity. It prepares students to coach, teach, administer, develop, and promote sport and physical activity programs or to pursue graduate studies in physical and health education.
Program of Study
See description on the Human Kinetics page.
To be in good academic standing in the School of Human Kinetics, the student must:
1) satisfy all conditions of admission;
2) not fail more than 3 credits in an academic year or in the previous 30 credits;
3) maintain a cumulative overall average of at least 4.0 on all courses taken.
A student who fails to attain good academic standing may be allowed to continue on probation for no more than one year (or 30 credits). If after one probationary period, the student does attain good academic standing, he or she may proceed in program. However, if after the probationary period, the student fails to attain good academic standing, he or she must withdraw from the School of Human Kinetics, but may apply to transfer to another program at the university.
A student who fails over 6 credits in the 1st-year of program may not proceed to upper year PHED courses.
After one calendar year, a student who has been asked to withdraw from the program may petition the Senate Committee on Academic Regulations and Awards for readmission, but such measures should have the recommendation of the academic unit before being considered by the Senate Committee.
