The Department of Exercise & Sport Studies strives to meet the needs and interests of current and future students by providing courses that promote fitness, contribute to mental health,  provide practical and theoretical research based information and opportunities for personal growth in the related fields of study.

Lecture topics include:

  • Inflammation response to injuries
  • Chronic and acute injuries

  • Gain an understanding of the causes and implications of acute an chronic injuries
