  • Department/School name

    I am conducting a survey of names of academic departments/schools that teach
    such subjects as biomechanics, exercise physiology, motor learning/control,
    sports psychology, sports sociology and similar subjects. At one time, the
    majority of these academic units probably had a name similar to 'physical
    education' or 'physical and health education'. However, today there seems
    to be a plethora of alternative names out there.

    If where you work falls into this category, please send me an email (if your
    email includes a signature with the academic unit name, you don't even have
    to include anything else in the email). Next week, I will post a summary of
    these names on the Biomechanics and Movement Science Web Discussion Forum
    ( for those who might be interested in
    the results.

    Thank you for your time.
