Are you fascinated by human movement and do you want to contribute to unravel its secrets? Do you want to advance your skills to provide answers to timely and urgent research questions? Are you interested in a career in research and development? Then the Research Master’s in Human Movement Sciences is the ideal programme for you!
The Research Master’s Human Movement Sciences is a two-year full-time programme that aims at integrating fundamental scientific research with relevant questions from clinical and sports practice. Grounded in the core themes of the Amsterdam Movement Sciences, the programme includes sport, rehabilitation, and regenerative medicine, with course topics stretching from molecular biology and neuroscience to exercise immunology and motor control. Apart from becoming well versed in these research domains, you will be trained in state-of-the-art research methods and advanced statistics.
The first year is dedicated to preparation for scientific research. The programme provides ample room for personalizing your own track, as we offer a variety of optional courses focusing on, for instance, sport psychology, biomechanics, (clinical) exercise physiology, muscle physiology, coordination dynamics, electromyography or time series analysis. You may specialize in sports or clinical issues, or on more fundamental aspects of human movement. Your second year is reserved for a research project of your own choice, in which you gain hands-on experience in all aspects of scientific research.
