Research

Based on the themes set forth in the University of Manitoba's Strategic Research Plan, FKRM research is categorized in themes of Culture and Creative Works, and Integrative Research in Health and Well-Being.

Researchers in the faculty are funded by all three of the Tri-Council Agencies (Canadian Institute of Health Research, Natural Science and Engineering Research Council, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council) as well as by other funding agencies such as the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, Manitoba Health Research Council, Manitoba Medical Services Foundation, Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada, and the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Resources and supports

Our graduate degree programs are highly competitive and are considered limited enrolment programs. Every year we admit a small number of high-caliber students to ensure each student receives the best one-on-one supervision possible.

Financial support is typically available to qualified applicants in the form of graduate assistantships to conduct research in the Institute, and to provide service to Bison Sports and Active Living programs.

Facilities

These laboratories provide space and equipment for the faculty and graduate student research activities:

  • Chronic Disease Prevention and Physical Activity Lab
  • Laboratory for Exercise and Environmental Medicine
  • Integrative Musculoskeletal Research Lab
  • Leisure and Tourism Laboratory
  • Biomechanics of Balance and Mobility Lab
  • Perceptual Motor Integration Lab
  • Extracellular Vesicles and Exercise Lab
  • Exercise Health and Psychology Lab
  • Psychology of Sport and Leisure Activity Lab
  • Cardiorespiratory and Physiology of Exercise Research Lab
  • Musculoskeltal Exercise Immunology Lab

Opportunities

Graduate students can compete for various local, regional and national funding awards. As well, the HLHP Research Institute and Faculty are committed to providing employment opportunities for graduate students on funded research initiatives, and providing ongoing support for student thesis work, such as awards for travel.

Our master's students win scholarships and awards, work on student research assistantships, speak at workshops and conferences, are published in journals, and work with world-class researchers and advisors. Best of all, they get a valuable and competitive degree from a Faculty with a strong reputation and a long success story.

Program details

The Master of Science (Kinesiology and Recreation) or Master of Arts (Kinesiology and Recreation) provides advanced education and research training within sub-disciplines including kinesiology, physical education, health, human performance, recreation, leisure, and tourism studies.

Expected duration: 2 years

Tuition and fees: One year tuition, then continuing fees in subsequent years (refer to Graduate tuition and fees)

The Kinesiology and Recreation Management MA and MSc programs consist of 12 credit hours of course work, a minimum of eight research seminars and a thesis requirement.

Within the 12 credit hours of coursework, students can choose to complete a directed study on a topic of their choosing. 

Students in the FKRM graduate program are required to complete a thesis as part of their degree requirement. Depending on the type of research and/or the area of study, the written format of your thesis may vary (e.g., several published articles). The selected format must be approved by your advisor and meet the Thesis Guidelines of the Faculty of Graduate Studies

The MA and MSc programs share the same requirements, however the degree designation will be determined by the admissions committee, in consultation with the advisor, based on the coursework and research to be undertaken.

Sample course offerings

  • KPER 7402: Community Development: Qualitative Methods (3 credit hours)
  • KPER 7100: Molecular Mechanisms of Exercise Physiology 1 (1.5 credit hours)
  • KPER 7200: Sensorimotor Integration: Fundamental Theories in Motor Control and Learning (3 credit hours)
  • KPER 7202: Instrumentation and Signal Processing in Human Movement Science (3 credit hours)
