The Interdisciplinary Program in Biomechanics and Movement Science includes faculty from the College of Health Science, College of Engineering, and College of Arts & Sciences who use an interdisciplinary approach to research and graduate education. The Program was recently rank among the top graduate programs in their fields in the United States, according to the latest assessment by the National Research Council (NRC).
Our Masters and PhD students study in one of 5 Areas of Study that cross traditional academic boundaries: (1)Applied Anatomy & Biomechanics, (2) Applied/Exercise Physiology (3) Molecular/Tissue Biomechanics (4) Motor Control and Behavior; and (5) Rehabilitation Engineering. Graduate students work with faculty advisors to design Plans of Study that suit their unique academic and research interests. Students gain research experience through involvement in over $30 million in federally funded research projects and through interaction with a variety of interdisciplinary research groups.
We invite you to explore our program and discover the rich and diverse opportunities we offer.
