Combining theoretical foundations with practical experience, TWU delivers programs that care about the health and wellness of individuals and their communities.

The health of one is the health of all. Our approach to Sports & Culture is distinguished by our faith and a view that helping individuals maintain and/or rediscover healthy, active lives is to the benefit of the community at large.

Sport, health, and recreation play a crucial role in keeping our communities healthy and it represents a growing number of professional opportunities for Christian leaders to inspire their communities to get engaged and stay active. Our passionate and highly experienced faculty promotes academic excellence and hands on experience needed to pursue a fulfilling career path. Our smaller class sizes allow for integrated discussion among students and nurtures long standing relationships between classmates and teachers.

Alumni Perspective

My time at Trinity Western University was a blessing and a privilege. TWU's School of Human Kinetics is truly unique. Its faculty are not only knowledgeable, but genuinely concerned with the success and joy of their students. The classes are small enough to allow for integrated discussion among students and for genuine relationships to be developed between classmates. I will never forget my time at Trinity Western, the professors who have become friends and colleagues, the classmates who have become peers, or the message of truly caring about the health and wellness of ourselves and others.
