About

The Master of Science in Neuromotor Science at Temple University’s College of Public Health examines the neural and sensorimotor factors of human movement: how humans learn, perceive and control movement.

Overview

The Neuromotor Science interdisciplinary master’s program at Temple University advances understanding of neuromotor control and biomechanics of human posture and movement, in individuals across the lifespan and the spectrum of health and disability.

Students in the program begin with a series of core courses that examine the foundations of neuromotor science, including neural factors, mechanics and models, and cognition and learning. You will learn to assess neuromotor function and its impact on health, functioning and disability. Electives in a range of disciplines allow you to tailor your coursework with the guidance of faculty members and the program director.

Future Career

Graduates of the program are prepared to develop interventions to improve human movement, particularly posture and locomotor control and function across the lifespan. They are able to pursue careers as researchers and educators at universities and research institutions, healthcare systems and in industries related to human health and movement, such as medical technology. Graduates also continue their studies in the PhD program.
