Welcome from the Chair

McMaster’s Department of Kinesiology is a vibrant group of faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows, and students who study the science of human movement.

Our activities support the central mission of the Faculty of the Science, which is to advance scientific discovery and knowledge, and to promote scientific literacy and understanding in our community. In our classrooms, laboratories and the community, we seek to advance societal health and wellbeing, and promote McMaster’s commitment to creating a Brighter World.

Our undergraduate program is home to over 800 students. They study a broad-based curriculum and have opportunities for focused inquiry and experiential learning through placements in our laboratories and the community. Our program was recently ranked in the top three in Canada and among the top 25 in the world, out of almost 400 institutions.
