This specialization is offered to prepare students who wish to enter physical or occupational therapy or other related professional school. 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 their choice. No practicum or internship is required. If the application deadline falls over a weekend, Professional Phase and Intent to Graduate forms will be due the following Monday. 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 health care settings and participate in related professional organizations.
