    Graduate Study in Movement Science at UT Austin:

    The graduate program in Movement Science (formerly Motor Behavior) in the
    Department of Kinesiology at the University of Texas at Austin is actively
    seeking highly motivated M.S. and Ph.D. graduate students to join our
    program. Students can pursue either Master's or Doctoral degrees in
    biomechanics, motor control, or developmental science.

    Funding is available for qualified individuals. Applications for Fall 2004
    admissions and financial aid are now being accepted. Applications should
    be received no later than January 15, 2004 for students to receive full
    consideration for ALL financial aid options. Students should keep in mind,
    however, that this is not a "hard" deadline. If you are seriously
    interested in applying, please contact us as soon as possible so we can at
    least start the application process by January 15.

    The Movement Science Program in the Department of Kinesiology at The
    University of Texas offers comprehensive advanced training in the
    biomechanics of human motion leading to Ph.D, M.A., or M.Ed.
    degrees. Students can take introductory and advanced level courses in such
    areas as Research Methodologies, Biomechanics in Clinical Settings,
    Biomechanics of Sport, Neuromuscular Bases of Motor Control, Principles of
    Neuroscience, Children's Exercise and Activity, Motor Development -
    Assessment, Advanced Exercise Physiology, Physical Dimensions 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,
    Neuroscience, or Psychology. Additional advanced courses, including
    research seminars, are also offered.

    Students are encouraged to contact individual faculty members to find out
    more about their research interests and programs:

    Dr. Lawrence Abraham, Professor, Motor Coordination Lab
    Dr. Jonathan Dingwell, Assistant Professor, Nonlinear Biodynamics Lab
    Dr. Lisa Griffin, Assistant Professor, Neuromuscular Physiology Lab
    Dr. Jody Jensen, Associate Professor, Developmental Motor Control Lab
    Dr. Waneen Spirduso, Professor, Aging Motor Behavior Lab

    Applications for admission and financial aid should be received by the
    Graduate School Admissions Office no later than January 15, 2004 if
    students wish receive full consideration for all financial aid
    options. However, applications received up until August 1, 2004 may still
    be considered for admission (only). For admission of a student into the
    Movement Science Graduate Program, the main considerations are: (a) the
    course background of the student (science courses, including Anatomy,
    Physiology, Biomechanics, Motor Control and Learning, etc.); (b) the
    student's GRE scores (Verbal scores should preferably be 500 or above,
    Quantitative and Analytical scores should preferably be in the 600's or
    above); and (c) the student's record of interest and academic performance
    in an area of study related to Movement Science. Outstanding students from
    the clinical sciences (e.g. PT, OT, etc.), as well as the biological and
    engineering sciences, are encouraged to apply.
