Graduates from our department will be prepared for positions as teachers, sport administrators, recreational leaders, sport facilities managers, trainers, coaches, physical therapists, kinesiologists, among many others. We encourage students to explore the B.C.'s Skills for Jobs Blueprint, the provincial portal, to align their educational pathways to their planned career.
We also encourage our students interested in careers in the sport industry to visit the following websites: viaSport Careers (paid and volunteer positions in BC), the Sport Research Intelligence Service (paid and volunteer positions across Canada) and the British Columbia Recreation and Parks Association.
We recommend that students graduating with the BPEC Kinesiology Specialization familiarize themselves with the British Columbia Association of Kinesiologists website. It houses information on job postings and becoming a practicing member.
