The Department of Biobehavioral Sciences offers programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders, Physical Education and Physical Culture, Movement Sciences and Kinesiology, and Neurosciences. 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.
We offer graduate degrees that focus on the study of all aspects of human communication, and the prevention and treatment of its disorders.
We examine movement from a multidisciplinary perspective. Combining physiology, behavioral science, neural bases of movement control, and pedagogy, our curriculum expands the learning experience.
Explore the complex relationship between the brain, cognition and behavior, and the educational experience.
