Overview, MS Kinesiology-Applied Movement Science

The School of Exercise and Nutritional Sciences offers graduate study leading to the Master of Science degree in kinesiology-applied movement science.

Kinesiology is a growing, interdisciplinary field that focuses on human function and disability. Our program delivers a unique combination of biomechanical, motor control and athletic training principles aimed at preparing professionals for a diverse set of health-related careers. In particular, our program emphases clinical research including the development of “hands on” data acquisition/analysis skills for the assessment and evaluation of motor performance in health and sport/exercise-related environments. This degree can serve as both an entry point into clinical research positions, or as preparation for doctorate degrees in physical therapy or other rehabilitation science-based graduate programs.

Facilities for this program include the biomechanics lab and motor control lab. For more information please contact Dr. Daniel Goble.
