The Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation at the University of Alberta is one of the premier faculties of its kind in the world. We are proud to boast excellence in teaching and research—both of which were recently recognized in the QS World University Rankings by Subject where the Faculty was named #7 in the world in sports-related subjects, up three spots from 2017’s rankings.
Our strength in research and teaching is our diversity in these areas. Our excellence in research and teaching encompasses work we do in the areas of sport, exercise, physical activity, health, tourism, sport rehabilitation, recreation, sport management and more. Our diversity extends to the aspect of the areas studied—biological, mechanical, behavioural and sociocultural.
