Bachelor of Kinesiology/
Bachelor of Education, Combined Degree
The Combined Bachelor of Kinesiology and Bachelor of Education Degree Program (BKin/BEd) is designed for students who want to pursue a career as a physical education teacher. Students in the BKin/BEd Combined Degree take a program of 150 credits over five years. During this five-year program, Kinesiology courses and Education courses are studied concurrently. Students who successfully complete this program are awarded both the Bachelor of Kinesiology Degree, and the Bachelor of Education Degree. Students apply for admission the Bachelor of Kinesiology and are registered in that program for the first three years. GPRC can offer students up to two years of appropriate course work for admission to year three at the University of Alberta. Students starting this program at GPRC may apply for admission to the University for year two, after completing 30 credits, or for year three, after completing 60 credits.
Students intending to pursue this combined degree are advised to declare this intent in the first year and as the course selection and sequence must be carefully planned. When students register, they will need to indicate whether they are preparing for the Elementary or Secondary Route of the BKin/BEd program as the courses taken in each program are slightly different. The sequencing of courses does not allow for much flexibility throughout the five years. Consult the current University of Alberta Calendar and contact the Chairperson of PEAK Department or an Academic Advisor for assistance with registering in courses for this program.
