The Department of Physical Education and Athletics at Grove City College offers students the opportunity to conduct meaningful, relevant research alongside experienced and accomplished faculty. All exercise science students are required to design, plan and execute a research project.
In addition to Research Methods and Research Practicum requirements, students have the opportunity to become involved with research as professionals and subjects through independent studies and by working with professors on their research.
Recent student research projects include:
• Effects of motivation on intensity of exercise
• Kinesio tape as a primary modality for pain management: A meta-analysis
• Effects of kinesio taping on force production during isokinetic contraction of the biceps brachii
• The effect of lower body power training on the speed, strength and agility of amateur level fencers
