    MS Exercise Science Graduate Assistantships available at Central Washington University

    The Department of Nutrition, Exercise, and Health Sciences at Central Washington University is seeking a highly motivated graduate student wanting to pursue a Master of Science degree in Exercise Science with an opportunity to focus on biomechanics.

    The MS Exercise Science program is designed to provide knowledge and expertise for students intending to pursue doctoral or professional programs, seeking a terminal degree for entry-level positions in a variety of private and public settings, as well as teaching positions at community college and other tertiary levels. More information about the program and faculty can be found online:

    The individual interested in biomechanics will be trained to collect human movement data using CWU’s state-of-the-art biomechanics lab. Our lab features: a six-camera motion capture system, two in ground force plates, a ten channel wireless surface EMG system, one pressure mat, instrumented rowing ergometer, as well as commercial biomechanics software suites. .

    Applicants must first meet the general requirements for graduate study as determined by CWU’s School of Graduate Studies and Research in addition to the specific graduate program admission requirements within the Department of Nutrition, Exercise, and Health Sciences. .

    A graduate assistantship with duties focused in the area of biomechanics is currently available. The selected candidate will commit to pursuing the final thesis project in biomechanics. GA duties will include teaching lab sections in biomechanics but will not be limited to biomechanics classes/labs. The assistantship typically covers approximately 80-85% of in-state tuition and includes a salary. Out of state tuition waivers are available. Furthermore, the department awards additional assistantships that are not tied to the area of biomechanics. Please check out our program and contact us if you are interested.

    Applications to the graduate program can be submitted here:

    For further inquiry about the program, please contact Dr. Leo D’Acquisto, Chair of the Graduate Program
    For further information about biomechanics related research interests, please contact Dr. Karen Roemer or Dr. Eric Foch
