Along with the program-specific requirements listed below, please read the General Information section of this website for requirements that apply to all major fields.
The School of Kinesiology spans a wide range of inquiry connected by the common thread of the study of human movement. Graduate programs reflect a broad study of physical activity ranging from exercise science, movement science, and human performance, to physical activity and sport science and sport management. Much of the research conducted in the school is interdisciplinary in nature and involves collaborative partnerships with life science disciplines such as medicine, neuroscience, and epidemiology and fosters links with business, education, and social sciences. MS students pursue an individualized program with an emphasis in one of the following areas: behavioral aspects of physical activity; biomechanics and neuromotor control; exercise physiology; perceptual-motor control and learning; physical activity and health; sport and exercise psychology; sport sociology. PhD students pursue an individualized program with an emphasis in behavioral aspects of physical activity, biomechanics and neuromotor control, exercise physiology, perceptual-motor control and learning, physical activity and health, sport and exercise psychology, sport management or sport sociology.

CPSY 5302 - Cognitive and Biological Development
Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]
Typically offered: Every Fall
This course concerns the development and function of thinking skills throughout the lifespan, touching upon several aspects of what makes humans unique. How are humans able to perceive, evaluate, interpret, infer, remember, symbolize, plan, evaluate, problem solve, and hypothesize? What influences the very emergence of such abilities and the nature of their function? What obstacles interfere with the development or the quality of cognitive processes? Brain development and other biological factors, and our relationships and other environmental factors influence our thinking and its development. Throughout this course, we will discuss how knowledge about cognitive development can influence our work with children, adolescents, and adults, in daily life, professional practice, and public policy. Among the many applications of our knowledge of cognitive development, in this course we will focus on select examples relevant to parenting, education, and media exposure, and on topics initiated by students. The course will address individual differences and cultural differences in cognitive development, and how knowledge about variation in “typical” cognitive development provides an important foundation for understanding atypical cognitive development.
