The Master of Fitness (MFSc) degree (non-thesis) involves coursework and an extensive practical experience to prepare students for a variety of professional careers including health promotion, sport and occupational fitness applications and exercise management for persons with chronic diseases or disabilities.
Completing the MFSc, satisfies the requirements to receive designations such as the Health and Fitness Federation of Canada - Certified Exercise Physiologist™ and enables students to apply for the Ontario College of Kinesiology registration.
Eligible candidates must have completed an undergraduate degree in physical activity/exercise science and have taken upper level university degree undergraduate courses in human whole body physical activity/exercise science applications. Only applicants who have a high GPA (A+, A, A-, and in exceptional circumstances B+, in which case, your covering letter must explain your circumstances) will be considered for acceptance. Please be advised that the applicant pool is very large and we can only accommodate a handful of new MFSc students each year.
Although other graduate faculty members supervise MFSc students, the primary supervisor and application contact for this program is Dr. Veronica Jamnik.
