In this course, students will explore potential research topics, evaluate the literature within the student's topic of choice, and identify appropriate measurement instruments to be used to conduct a study during Research and Statistical Methods - II. Each student will write a research proposal. The course is also designed to develop students' competencies in understanding the rationales and computational procedures required for basic behavioral statistics. The students identify, select, compute, and interpret basic statistical tests appropriate for exercise science and sport studies and uses SPSS, a sophisticated, professional statistical software package.
Prerequisite(s): HHP 3850 Biomechanics and Kinesiology and HHP 4150 Physiology of Exercise or permission of instructor. (Normally offered each fall semester)
This course integrates physics with human movement to provide understanding of human movement from a kinetic and kinematic perspective. Students will explore and apply these principles to a human movement or exercise of their choice. In the later part of the course, students will be exposed to the detailed structural kinesiology of the musculoskeletal system.
Prerequisite(s): BIO 1090 Human Anatomy and Physiology and junior standing.
(Normally offered each spring semester.)
This course explores the physiological effects and adaptations of exercise using a system approach. Students will be exposed to the latest research in the field that contributes to our understanding of how the human body is designed for exercise and movement. Practical application of these principles will be explored during class and throughout the laboratory experience.
One three-hour lab per week.
Prerequisite(s): BIO 1100 Human Anatomy and Physiology and junior standing.
(Normally offered each fall semester.)
