Laboratories and Research

The faculty of the Department of Kinesiology embrace their roles as teachers, scholars, and mentors by engaging students outside of the classroom in a wide variety of community outreach activities, collaborative and mentored research projects, and theory-to-practice experiential learning opportunities. Students can gain hands on experience in Exercise and Sport Science in one of our seven laboratories during traditional class time and through research experiences with a faculty mentor in their area of research interest.
