Biobehavioral Sciences

Welcome to the Department of Biobehavioral Sciences

The Department of Biobehavioral Sciences offers programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders, Movement Sciences and Kinesiology, and Neuroscience and Education. Our research focuses on the application of the biological, physiological, behavioral, cognitive, and sociocultural sciences underlying human communication, movement, and function to clinical, educational and community settings. The scientific knowledge obtained from research in these specialized fields is applied to enhance the educational, functional, and communicative capabilities and health of people of all ages and health status with and without functional limitations or disability. Our doctoral graduates will go on to assume challenging research, academic, and professional roles in educational, clinical, governmental, and non-governmental settings.
