McMaster moves kinesiology department to science faculty

February 4, 2009

This semester, McMaster University shifted its kinesiology department from the social sciences faculty to the science faculty. The move reflects the department's growing science-based academic and research focus. The move is also hoped to quell the perception that the kinesiology department serves as a training ground for gym teachers. The department is primary viewed as precursor to medicine, with about 70% of graduates moving on to additional training in health-care fields. McMaster Daily News | Hamilton Spectator
