Graduate Teaching Assistantships
Department of Human Kinetics
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

The Department of Human Kinetics offers a Master of Science degree program
emphasizing research in the human movement sciences. The program provides
instruction and research opportunities for students interested in studying
the human under dynamic conditions. The thrust of the curriculum is the
integration of the body of knowledge fundamental to the science of human
movement through study in 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 Department has four graduate teaching assistant (GTA) positions (outlined
below). Only students accepted to the Human Kinetics graduate program will be
considered for appointment. Admission criteria include:
1) GRE scores
2) Undergraduate grade point average (minimum 2.75 out of 4.0)
3) Appropriate coursework history

Appointments begin in mid/late-August and are for one academic year (9 months)
are renewable and dependent on funding. GTAs are required to enroll in
a minimum of 6 semester hours to maintain eligibility. GTA appointments are
half-time and carry a waiver of tuition plus a stipend of approximately $8,200
per academic year. Students are responsible to pay fees.

Candidates should express their interest by including a statement and other
appropriate information (resume, vita, and/or narrative identifying relevant
experiences, etc.) along with their formal application materials.
