Beyond the Classroom

Learning doesn't stop once you leave the classroom.

Clinical experiences and practical application of knowledge are cornerstones of the School of Kinesiology.

Research for a Reason

Our faculty and students are making new discoveries in our continual search for knowledge.

We investigate how prolonged sleep deprivation affects exercise abilities, and test the effects of different nutritional and exercise supplements.

Joie de Vivre

Our faculty not only push for excellence in the classroom and the laboratory, but they are also fully invested in the community and Louisiana.

That means you graduate with the knowledge, skills, and network you need to be successful.
