About

Please note that despite offering the required first-year classes for this program, students are not currently permitted to enrol in this program at the St. Peter's College campus. It may be possible to transfer from one program to this one in your second year, though there is no guarantee of admittance.

We recommend that you contact recruiting.education@usask.ca and follow their admissions advice. 

The Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology/Bachelor of Education Combined Program has been re-envisioned and newly integrated. This five-year program is designed for students who intend to teach physical education at the secondary level. Students in the combined program will receive the benefits of being in the Colleges of Education and Kinesiology for all five years of the program.

Upon completion of the first year, many St. Peter’s College students move to the U of S main campus to continue their studies. In some instances, students can complete the second year of studies with St. Peter's College. St. Peter’s students must meet the same promotion standards as U of S students in order to move into the second year of study. Please contact Student Services for more information on promotion standards. Further information on this program can be found directly on the University of Saskatchewan's website.
