  • Graduate Study in Kinesiology at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

    The Department of Kinesiology (College of Health Sciences) at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee is seeking motivated graduate students for our M.S. Kinesiology and Ph.D. in Health Sciences programs. These multidisciplinary programs prepare students for careers in higher-education, research, and practice through didactic coursework in the areas of Exercise and Nutrition in Health and Disease, Integrative Human Performance, and Neuromechanics. Knowledge and skills in research-related and discipline-specific coursework helps prepare students to address complex real-world health and performance issues and utilize critical thinking skills to generate knowledge and make sound decisions to support continued personal and professional development.

    Selected active research in the Integrative Human Performance and the Neuromechanics areas include the mechanics of lower extremity injuries, development of new motion capture technologies, emergence of leg control in infants, cortical role in visuomotor coupling, and age-related control of balance and force regulation. Department of Kinesiology and MS Kinesiology program information, including details on the application process can be found at Please direct MS Kinesiology questions to Dr. Stephen Cobb (414-229-3369 or Interested applicants are also strongly encouraged to contact a faculty member(s) in their area of interest to discuss potential funding and research opportunities.
