  • Graduate Study in Kinesiology - UW-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 Biomechanics, Exercise Physiology, Motor Behavior, Rehabilitation, Sport & Exercise Psychology, and Psychosocial Aspects of Health Behavior. 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 areas of biomechanics and motor control 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 www4.uwm.edu/chs/academics/kinesiology/kinesiology_masters/. Please direct MS Kinesiology questions to Dr. Ann Swartz (414-229-4242 or aswartz@uwm.edu). Interested applicants are also strongly encouraged to contact a faculty member in their area of interest to discuss potential funding and research opportunities.

    Information on the Health Sciences PhD program can be found at http://www4.uwm.edu/chs/academics/phd_health_sciences/. Please direct PhD program questions to Dr. Paula Rhyner (414-229- 4878 or prhyner@uwm.edu)

    Several graduate teaching assistant (GTA) positions are available. GTA appointments are half-time (~20 hours per week) and carry a waiver of tuition plus a stipend of approximately $11,600- $16, 200 per academic year. For full consideration for a GTA appointment, materials must be received by January 15. A limited number of fellowships and free standing awards may be available to outstanding students. Additionally, research or project assistantships may be available pending individual faculty funding. Only students admitted to the MS or PhD programs will be considered for a GTA appointment.
