The Minor in Human Movement Science is open to all majors at the university with the exception of Bouvé Doctor of Physical Therapy students. The minor is designed for students who seek to complement their current studies with a more detailed understanding of the interplay of human anatomy and kinetic forces of movement specific to their chosen career path. It includes three required courses and one elective course with offerings that can be tailored to a student's interest in ergonomics, sport, kinetic movement, or deeper human anatomy knowledge through cadaveric education. Pursuing a Minor in Human Movement Science will complement students’ knowledge in their related fields of science, engineering, and entrepreneurship to provide a baseline understanding of human anatomy, functional demands, and movement analysis as they relate to activities of daily living. To be admitted to the Minor in Human Movement Science, students must be in good academic standing (minimum 2.000 GPA overall).
