The School of Health and Exercise Sciences at the UBC Okanagan campus offers a Bachelor of Health and Exercise Sciences, Masters of Health and Exercise Sciences, and PhD in Kinesiology.

The School's mission is to optimize human health for individuals and populations through excellence in interdisciplinary teaching, research, and community engagement.

The span of research activities within the School is broadly encapsulated across three thematic groupings, with a small number of faculty conducting research between, or across these areas.

The three thematic groupings include Sensorimotor Neuroscience and Neuromuscular Physiology, Health Behaviour Change, and Cardiovascular and Respiratory Physiology.
