B.S. in Kinesiology: Concentration in Motor Behavior
Our Motor Behavior program prepares students to enter physical or occupational therapy, or related professional schools. The course of study is designed to provide students a broad background with special emphasis on both the physiology and psychology of human movement.
Professional directed electives allow students to obtain the prerequisites unique to the professional school of choice. No practicum or internship is required.
The program also provides the background for students that wish to go to graduate school in motor neuroscience. These students, with the permission of the laboratory director, may enroll in independent study leading to an undergraduate research project in motor behavior (motor development, motor learning, or motor control). Students are encouraged to participate in volunteer activities in various heath care settings and participate in related professional organizations.
The program has two phases:
- Pre-professional phase
- Professional phase
Students must complete prerequisite courses designated on their degree plan before applying to the professional phase.
