    Course Summary

    The University of New Brunswick’s Bachelor of Recreation and Sports Studies program is delivered by its Faculty of Kinesiology, and is very closely linked to their BSc program in Kinesiology. However, this is not s program designed to provide a route to a career in sports medicine. 

    Rather, it is designed for students who wish to learn about the social and psychological ramifications of physical activity, sports and recreation. It will give you the kind of expertise you will need to build an exciting and lucrative career in forming, managing and administrating recreational programs on the community level, making young people healthier and happier, thereby contributing dramatically to community health and wellbeing. 

    The Faculty of Kinesiology has been leading the way in the psychological and wellbeing aspects of sport and recreation for more than 60 years, and the BRSS degree program makes full use f that expertise to prepare you for many different careers.
