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 secrets of human movement.
Grounded in the five core research themes of the Amsterdam Movement Sciences (AMS) institute, the Research Master includes courses on sports, musculoskeletal health, tissue function and regeneration, ageing and vitality, and rehabilitation and development. Topics covered range from molecular biology to neuroscience and neuro-muscular-skeletal systems, 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 by starting with a PhD position or by entering an R&D environment. You’ll also be well equipped for other research-related positions.
Specific information about the courses can be found in the Study Guide.
The start date of this programme is September 1st.
