Human Movement Science

Advancing and restoring physical function

Emphasizing foundational knowledge in physics and biology, Human Movement Science explores the causes and consequences of human movement across the lifespan, including the prevention and treatment of acute and chronic conditions that cause disorders of movement. Exercise Science explores the interrelationships among lifestyle, physical activity and health, and the science of improving human performance. A concentration in Pre-physical Therapy prepares graduates who help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility. 

The Doctor of Physical Therapy program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy (CAPTA).
