SKHS Seminar Series


The Queen’s University School of Kinesiology and Health Studies (SKHS) values the interplay between disciplinary and professional areas within our program. The SKHS Graduate Seminar Series is a primary forum to promote this value among our Graduate Students and Faculty Members.  As such, the specific objectives of the SKHS Graduate Seminar Series are to:

  • foster critical academic discussion between students and faculty members from all disciplines within our School;
  • expand knowledge about topics from the broad field of Kinesiology and Health Studies; and
  • develop graduate students’ communication skills by providing opportunity for them to present and to ask questions during seminars,


The SKHS Graduate Seminar Series is held on selected Wednesdays in Room KHS 101 (times and locations may vary from term to term – check your Agenda for final details)
