Health and Exercise Sciences is the comprehensive study and practice of human movement and its impact on health. Accordingly, the Bachelor of Health and Exercise Sciences at the UBC Okanagan campus provides students with an understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of human health that includes psychological, physiological, neuromechanical and socio-cultural aspects of movement. The aim is to develop leaders who have the ability to work effectively with healthy individuals and those living with chronic conditions to enhance wellbeing.

The Bachelor of Health and Exercise Sciences (B.H.E.S.) is a 120-credit degree program, with the option to complete one of three concentrations: Kinesiology & Allied Health, Health Behaviour Change or Clinical Exercise Physiology.

The curriculum includes core, concentration, and elective courses, giving students common foundational knowledge as well as the opportunity to complement their choice of concentration with courses of personal interest.

Graduates will find work within local, national, and international health and government organizations, pursue graduate studies, or enter a variety of allied health professions.
