KIN 105 FOUNDATIONS OF EXERCISE SCIENCE
F,S 3 cr. LEC 3
-- The aim of this course is to integrate the subdisciplines of exercise science (nutrition, biomechanics, exercise physiology, motor control, and exercise psychology) from the perspectives of definitions, basic science with application to health, fitness, and athletic performance.

KIN 221 HEALTH ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY
F 3 cr. LEC 3
-- This course will focus on the key elements of anatomy and physiology necessary for students in allied health professions, specifically those who will work the areas of community health, health enhancement education, health promotion, and kinesiology. The aim of this course is for students to demonstrate working knowledge of the muscular, skeletal, nervous, cardiovascular, and respiratory, endocrine, and digestive systems, as well as body metabolism.

KIN 270 EXERCISE PROGRAMMING FOR OLDER ADULTS
S 3 cr. LEC 2 LAB 1
-- Students will examine the special exercise-related needs of older adults and learn how to safely and effectively meet those needs. The lab will provide practical experience working with older adults in exercise program for seniors.

KIN 304 TECHNOLOGY APPLICATIONS IN HEALTH SCIENCES
S 3 cr. LEC 3
-- Skills, knowledge, and applications necessary for integrating technology into developmentally appropriate teaching practices in Health Enhancement. Identifies theories, principles, and strategies for the integration of technology into physical education, physical activity, and health settings.

KIN 320 EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY
F,S 4 cr. LEC 3 LAB 1
PREREQUISITE: Grade of "C" or better in BIOH 201 or KIN 221, or permission of instructor.
-- Topics include factors and mechanisms involved with causing changes and adaptations in the physiological responses to training and participating in strength and endurance sports and activities. Lectures and labs emphasize explaining common observations and practices from the physiological view point.

KIN 322 KINESIOLOGY
F,S 4 cr. LEC 3 LAB 1
PREREQUISITE: BIOH 201 or KIN 221, and M core or permission of instructor.
-- Emphasizes the effects of joint structures and muscles on movement of the upper extremity, lower extremity, and spine while providing an introduction to the principles of biomechanics.

KIN 325R BIOMECHANICS
S 4 cr. LEC 3 LAB 1
PREREQUISITE: M 151 or M 161, BIOH 201, PHSX 205 and KIN 322.
COREQUISITE: FCS 371 and STAT 217.
-- This course emphasizes the effects of structure, motion, forces, and their effects on and within the human body using both qualitative and quantitative analyses. Additional emphasis will be placed on the development of critical thinking skills associated with biomechanics-related research and interpretation.

KIN 410 ADVANCED STRENGTH TRAINING AND CONDITIONING
F,S 3 cr. LEC 3
PREREQUISITE: KIN 320.
-- Emphasizes the use of critical thinking skills for exercise development and progressions based on fundamental principles from kinesiology, biomechanics, exercise physiology, motor control, and motor learning. Practical application of this material to the areas of personal training, physical therapy, health enhancement teaching, and exercise physiology is emphasized.

KIN 415 ADVANCED EXERCISE TESTING AND PRESCRIPTION
S 4 cr. LEC 3 LAB 1
PREREQUISITE: KIN 320, STAT 216, with grade "C" or better in each course, or permission of instructor.
-- Senior capstone course. Students are familiarized with the hands-on training and theoretical background needed to competently assess levels of health/fitness in a "low-risk" healthy adult population. Lecture/lab content is structured to prepare students for taking the ACSM Health Fitness Specialist (HFS) certification exam.

KIN 440R SPORT PSYCHOLOGY
S 3 cr. LEC 3
