Are you interested in optimizing sports performance, helping people with impaired motor functioning, or gaining a fundamental understanding of how we move? Then the Master’s in Human Movement Sciences is the ideal programme for you! You will learn to translate multidisciplinary scientific knowledge to applications in sports and healthcare practice.

From the latest developments in sports training to new approaches to rehabilitation, this Master’s programme provides state of the art insights into the ways in which motor performance can be enhanced. From biomechanics to psychology. From exercise physiology to neurorehabilitation. And from muscle function to motor development.
