Graduate Teaching Assistantships. 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 a number of open graduate teaching assistant (GTA) positions for 1999-2000 (outlined in more detail 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 of 2.75 on 4.0 scale)
3) Appropriate coursework history

Appointments begin in mid/late-August and are for one academic year (9 months), 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 (in state or out of state) plus a stipend of approximately $8,600 per academic year. Students are responsible to pay segregated fees (approximately $250 per semester for full-time enrollment).

Candidates should express their interest for a GTA position by including a statement and other appropriate information (resume, vita, and/or narrative identifying relevant experiences, and arrange for submission of 2 letters of reference related to teaching potential) along with their formal application materials. Application materials may be obtained by contacting the Graduate School (414.229.4982) or the department's Graduate Coordinator, Dr. Barbara Hart (414.229.5678 or hart@uwm.edu).
