The Department of Exercise Science 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 work with professional researchers and as subjects through independent studies and through professorial research.
