Human Movement Sciences: Sport, Exercise & Health (research)

Physical activity and exercise are often a means to get or stay healthy. But they can also be an aim in and of themselves. How can we help older people to stay mobile and independent? How do top athletes get maximum performance out of their muscles?

 

As a Research Master’s student, you’ll learn how to answer questions like these that are both urgent and relevant in today’s society. Your research will be aimed at unravelling the the secrets of human movement.

 

Grounded in the five core research themes of the Amsterdam Movement Sciences (AMS) institute, the Research Master’s includes courses on sports, musculoskeletal health, tissue function and regeneration, ageing and vitality, and rehabilitation and development. Topics covered range from molecular biology to systems neuroscience, and from biomechanics to motor behaviour.

 

In addition to becoming well versed in these research areas, you’ll be trained in state-of-the-art research methodologies and advanced statistics. The interactive, small-scale teaching methods used in the programme allow you to have in-depth discussions that meet the level and intensity of a Research Master’s programme. Plus, all the lecturers are renowned experts in their fields of research.

 

After completing the Research Master’s, you’ll be well prepared to pursue a scientific career, either starting with a PhD position or by entering an R&D environment. You’ll also be well equipped for other research-related positions.
