Movement Science Concentration
The movement science concentration seeks to provide PhD students with a common background relative to movement science with emphasis on application to rehabilitation. Movement requires the coordinated interaction between neurons and muscles, and our program includes faculty studying all aspects of neuromuscular function. As such, we fully embrace the spectrum of movement science ranging from genes and molecules to biomechanics. The program offers a core set of required classes to be taken by all movement science students. After the required core program, students are encouraged to tailor the remaining core coursework to match their research aims.
