The study and application of the principles of motor learning and motor control are essential in teaching motor skills and analyzing problems individuals have with motor performance and movements. This is one of the foundational subjects of Exercise Science, yet is applicable not only to students interested in Exercise Science, but also to those interested in elementary education, health science, and psychology. The course emphasis is studying the acquisition and development of motor skills and motor control throughout the lifespan and will include applied research experiences.
