Research and Statistical Methods is designed for junior or senior-level HHP majors to develop an understanding of the research process and the rationales for basic behavioral statistics in the field of exercise science. This class will focus on the creation of a research proposal for exercise science and on developing reading, writing, and practical skills to interpret and conduct research.
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 Introduction to Human Anatomy and Physiology I 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 Introduction to Human Anatomy and Physiology II and junior standing.
(Normally offered each fall semester.)
