Graduate Fellowship in Movement Sciences

The Department of Human Movement Sciences at the University of
Wisconsin - Milwaukee offers a MS in Kinesiology degree emphasizing
research in the human movement sciences. The program provides
instruction and research opportunities for students interested in
studying the biopsychosocial aspects of human movement. The thrust of
the curriculum is the integration of the body of knowledge fundamental
to the science of human movement through study in at least three of the
five sub-disciplines represented by faculty in the program
(Biomechanics, Exercise Physiology, Motor Control, Psychological Aspects
of Physical Activity and Sociological Aspects of Physical Activity).
The chancellor's fellowship for 2003-2004 will be awarded to support a
master's student who wishes to pursue human movement research and
scholarship as a means to contribute to the scientific foundation of one
or more of the five sub-disciplines and/or their professional
application. The fellowship recipient will be selected from the
applicant pool on the basis of academic credentials, career goals, and
research focus.
Only students accepted to the Kinesiology graduate program will be
