About the Program
The Movement & Sport Sciences major is based on the idea of studying human movement and sport from the point of view of sub-disciplines in kinesiology. The curriculum includes courses in exercise physiology, biomechanics, motor control, motor development, and sport and exercise psychology. Students take advanced courses in three of these areas. After completing the foundational and advanced courses, students can work with a professor to conduct research. This major offers excellent preparation for students who plan to attend graduate school in an area of kinesiology or professional school. Examples include physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT), medicine, chiropractic, biomechanics, exercise physiology, motor learning, motor development, etc.
