An expansive curriculum with two paths to a degree
As a biomechanics student, you'll take coursework in the other areas within human performance to understand the mechanical, neural, and physiological aspects of human motion and gain knowledge and skills in statistics, data processing, and biomechanical research design. You will select elective courses with approval from your advisor and have opportunities to assist with research in the Biomechanics Laboratory.
Although the degree emphasizes research, you may pursue a thesis or a non-thesis master's degree. The thesis option is strongly recommended if you wish to continue on to the Ph.D. program in human performance. Admission to the Biomechanics emphasis is limited, so you are encouraged to communicate with the director of the biomechanics emphasis to confirm availability.
