Research Mini-Stream

Faculty members in the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies developed this mini-stream to provide students an opportunity to immerse themselves in research.

The Research Mini-Stream experience provides an excellent opportunity for students who are considering applying to a graduate or post-degree program to explore their research potential.  Students receive a certificate from the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies at the completion of the 15.0 required units (it will not appear on the student transcript).
