For their final project, students in KIN 8980 – Graduate Research Seminar in Kinesiology presented ideas for research projects “that bridge” across different School of Kinesiology emphasis areas.
KIN 8980 is required for all M.S./M.A. and Ph.D. students, and covers topics such as responsible conduct of research and proposal design. Yuhei Inoue, Ph.D., assistant professor of Sport Management in the School, taught the course this fall.
During the semester, students discussed the wide spectrum of faculty and student research activities across the department. They then were divided into teams to design potential interdisciplinary research projects to present to the class, and face critical questions from their audience.
