Human Movement Sciences

The department of Human Movement Sciences provides education for the bachelor of HMS and three master's degree programs. Our research covers a broad spectrum of fundamental and applied research in human movement. The research is multidisciplinary; we combine physiology, psychology, mathematics and (bio) mechanics, and have an integrative and translational approach.

Our research is mainly experimental, and focuses on the movement of man in relation to his surroundings and to the musculoskeletal system. This is to examine both the normal and the pathological functioning.

In addition to the fundamental research we do research that focuses on the application of the knowledge we obtained, with the aim of optimizing mobility in for example sport and rehabilitation. Our research is largely funded by parties outside the university, such as NWO, STW, EU, and charities.


The Education section of the Department of Human Movement Sciences consists of six junior teachers who develop workgroup and practical education and give the first-year HMS courses. More about Education. 


The research of the Human Movement Sciences department is embedded in two institutes co-initiated by the department, namely Amsterdam Movement Sciences en Institute of Brain and Behavior Amsterdam. More about our Research.
