Dawid Tatarczyk's research examines the political influence of the Catholic Church in consolidated democracies. His dissertation utilizes a variety of research methods, including QCA and process tracing to analyze 24 OECD countries. The primary goal of the dissertation is to explain which combination of institutional conditions (i.e. Catholic electorate, referenda, and Christian Democratic Parties) is necessary/sufficient for the Church to exercise political influence.

The exercise science major is one of the fastest growing majors on campus. It provides students with the knowledge of how the human body reacts and adapts to exercise. Students are taught how to improve fitness, human performance, and health promotion by applying basic science to health- and fitness-related problems through fitness assessment and exercise prescription.
Job opportunities for exercise science majors include personal trainer, strength and conditioning coach, and cardiac rehabilitation. Graduates of the program frequently attend graduate or professional schools or work in health- and fitness-related settings. They may also pursue careers in allied health professions like physician assistant, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. Students who complete a degree in exercise science are also able to sit for certifications by the American College of Sports Medicine. There is an extensive array of athletic training and exercise science equipment available within the program's athletic training facilities and Human Movement Lab, respectively.
