Graduate Studies in Motor Behavior at UT Austin:

The Department of Kinesiology at the University of Texas at Austin is
actively seeking highly motivated students interested in pursuing master's
and/or Ph.D. degrees in the biomechanics and/or motor control of human
movement. Funding is available for highly qualified individuals.
Applications for Fall 2002 admissions and financial aid are now being
accepted. Applications should be received no later than February 1, 2003
for students to receive full consideration for ALL financial aid options.

The Motor Behavior Program within the Department of Kinesiology at The
University of Texas offers comprehensive advanced training in the
biomechanics and motor control of human motion leading to both Master's and
Doctoral degrees. Students can take introductory and advanced level
courses in such areas as Research Methodologies, Biomechanics of Human
Movement, Musculoskeletal Biomechanics, Biomechanics of Sport,
Neuromuscular Bases of Motor Control, Neural Control of Posture and
Locomotion, Principles of Neuroscience, Advanced Exercise Physiology,
Physiology of Aging, and more. In addition to the courses offered by the
Department of Kinesiology, students take classes in other areas, such as
Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, or
Psychology. Additional advanced courses, including research seminars, are
also offered. Some background in the biological sciences is desirable and a
good aptitude for math and mechanics is crucial. Fluent English is required.

Applications for admission and financial aid should be received by the
Graduate School Admissions Office no later than February 1, 2003 for
students to receive full consideration for ALL financial aid options. For
admission of a student into the Motor Behavior Program, the main
considerations are: (a) the course background of the student (science
courses, including Physics, Mechanics, Mathematics, Anatomy, Physiology,
Biomechanics, Motor Control and Learning, etc.); (b) the student's GRE
scores ("quantitative" and "analytical" scores should preferably be in the
700's); and (c) the student's record of interest and academic performance
in the biomechanics of human movement. Outstanding students from the
biological and engineering sciences are encouraged to apply. For more
