A Montana State University spring online course in human physiology is now open for registration. The course, called "Sport Physiology" (HHD 550-01), examines the human body's response to sport training and performance. It is ideal for students and professionals in exercise science, kinesiology, health and human development, athletic training and coaching and allied health programs. The science-based course offers three graduate credits and is offered fully online.

Participants will study the muscular, neuromuscular, cardio-respiratory, and endocrine systems during physical performance. They will also examine nutrition, ergogenic aids, body composition, weight control, temperature regulation and other aspects of athletic training and sports conditioning. Students will also use virtual laboratory experiences to study basic sport testing techniques.

The eight-week course begins March 1, but enrollment is limited and early registration is encouraged. Students do not have to be admitted to an MSU degree program in order to enroll.
