The Movement Scientist

Human Movement coaches help others to learn. They may work with children or adolescents; with those who are relearning movements after injury or illness; or with those learning movements completely anew (for example, learning to use prosthetic limbs).

What do human movement coaches do?

The degree program in Exercise and Sports Sciences – Human Movement prepares you for the diverse range of tasks human movement coaches tackle in the national and international market. Your work as a human movement coach lies in the areas of learning or relearning and optimizing motor skills, working with children, adult patients, trainers, and athletes. The content of the degree program focuses on the topics of motor control, development, and acquired motor learning, supplemented with psychological and pedagogical experience. You will analyze, support, and provide movement therapy for specific sports, and in illness and rehabilitation, working with both children and adults. You may also provide professional help in dealing with restrictions in movement in everyday life (for example, providing health support in companies and corporations).

As a graduate of the Exercise and Sports Sciences – Human Movement program you earn the title of human movement coach. You provide support and optimize movement profiles in various spheres of activity and across all age groups and work to prevent and treat limitations in movement in your patients and clients. As a graduate, you can also continue on to Master’slevel studies in human movement at LUNEX University or another university.

Employment opportunities for graduates include:

  • private practices (as employees or self-employed)
  • prevention and rehabilitation centers
  • clinics and hospitals
  • commercial companies
  • sports clubs and confederations
  • science and research
  • schools & kindergardens

Study progress

The study program Exercise & Sport Sciences – Human Movement (B.Sc.) offers a broad range of knowledge. Movement and movement behaviour are approached from different perspectives, including sports medicine, biomechanics, psychology and pedagogy. At the same time the students learn how to coach and how to work scientifically. The program culminates with the bachelor’s thesis.
