Study options

Minor in ergonomics

Ergonomists help prevent illness and injury in the workplace. They examine working life in detail, whether it’s in the control room of a nuclear power plant or the cockpit of an airplane. UNB is the only Kinesiology program in the Maritimes to offer this option, which prepares you for graduate studies in ergonomics.

If you’re interested in advance study within the kinesiology realm, the directed studies course allows you to pursue a subject in-depth. Your professor will guide you through an independent research project. This is a good option if you’re considering graduate school or a career in a specialized area of kinesiology.
