Brescia University College Eligibility For Modules in Health Sciences (BHSc) and Kinesiology
School of Kinesiology
Students may apply for admission to the Major module in the Kinesiology BA program while enrolled at Brescia University College. Due to the limited enrolment nature of the program, applications for the Major module for both internal and external senior transfer students from Brescia (i.e., those who wish to transfer in Year 2, 3 or 4) will be assessed by the School of Kinesiology in the Faculty of Health Sciences. Brescia students doing a Double Major that includes a Kinesiology Major module will receive the degree associated with the program in which they are enrolled at Brescia University College. Please consult the Academic Counsellor at Brescia University College for further information. For further information see:

Three-Year (15-Course) Degree Programs
This policy came into effect on September 1, 2002, when the Grade Point System was withdrawn and the new Progression Requirements implemented.
Three-year degree programs are composed of 15.0 courses chosen in accordance with degree objective and departmental regulations. Four-year honors degree programs are similar except that the total number of courses is not fewer than 20.0.
Progression in the three-year, 15.0-course programs is based on two levels of progression requirements that specify the minimum cumulative averages that must be achieved for each level.
Honors Program in French - Besanšon
