Gupta Faculty of Kinesiology and Applied Health

Kinesiology is the study of human movement and its components (anatomical, physiological, neurological, biochemical, biomechanical, neuromotor, psychological). The Faculty is home to the Department of Kinesiology and Applied Health, which has three main programs of study: Physical and Health Education, Athletic Therapy and Kinesiology.

Our faculty members have varied research interests including respiratory physiology, clinical biomechanics, nutrition, musculoskeletal injuries and concussion in sport, athletes’ use of mental imagery, coach mentorship and physical literacy across the lifespan. Our faculty has close ties with Wesmen Athletics and Recreation Services that support University of Winnipeg students, athletes and the community.

If you are interested in sport, movement and health, you can find many ways to discover, achieve, and belong in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Applied Health.
