Movement Science students gain a comprehensive understanding of human movement, including applied, health-related, clinical, and theoretical aspects of how our bodies function. This major provides a comprehensive understanding of kinesiology by incorporating coursework on adapted physical activity, motor behavior, exercise physiology, sport psychology, and biomechanics. Students benefit from hands-on experience and have the opportunity to conduct research with faculty in one of five laboratories within the department.

The knowledge and skills developed here can be used in a variety of settings where you can help people by improving and maintaining their health and quality of life through physical activity. If you’re interested in pursuing an advanced degree, prepare for graduate study that prepares you for movement-based allied health professions.
