Students who pursue a Master of Science in Movement Science study human movement in depth from different perspectives. Our graduate faculty are leading scholars in several movement-related areas including exercise physiology, motor control and development, biomechanics, and sport-related injury prevention.
In addition to coursework, our program provides students with the opportunity to gain valuable and relevant research experience focused on topics such as obesity, diabetes, mechanisms and prevention of joint injury, concussion, movement-based rehabilitation, and learning and adaptation of motor behavior across the lifespan.
Graduate training often involves collaborations with other units on campus including engineering, psychology, public health and medicine. An important aspect of our program is the flexibility in course selection and research areas which allow students to tailor their program of study to fit individual interests. Graduates are well-prepared to pursue doctoral research studies, professional health care programs including medicine and rehabilitation, health and wellness, as well as positions in the private and public sector.
