    Graduate Teaching Assistantships

    The Department of Human Kinetics at the University of Wisconsin -
    Milwaukee 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
    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 Department
    has graduate teaching assistant (GTA) positions available in three areas
    (outlined in more detail below). Only students accepted to the Human
    Kinetics graduate program will be considered for a GTA appointment.

    Criteria for admission to the graduate program include:
    1. GRE scores
    2. Undergraduate grade point average (minimum of 2.75 on 4.0
    scale)
    3. Appropriate coursework history

    Program application materials may be obtained by contacting the
    Graduate School (414.229.4982) or the department's Graduate Coordinator,
    Dr. Barbara Meyer (414.229.4591 or bbmeyer@uwm.edu). Our web-site
    (http://www.uwm.edu/SAHP/gp/hk/ghkmenu.html) has additional helpful
    information.

    To apply for a GTA appointment, candidates shall also submit:
    1. A formal letter of application
    2. A resume / vita that presents information and experiences
    relevant to GTA duties
    3. Two letters of recommendation attesting to the candidate's
    abilities to perform GTA duties

    Candidates may include their GTA application materials along with their
    documentation for admission to the program. For full consideration for
    a GTA appointment, materials must be received by March 16, 2001.

    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 plus a stipend
    of approximately $9,000 per academic year. Students are responsible to
    pay fees.
