Kinesiology is the
study of human movement. This course will explore
the theory behind how individuals move, with an
emphasis on principles related to exercise and athletics.
Students will study the scientific principles of
movement including anatomical and physiological
principles, internal and external forces acting
on the body, kinematics, levers, linear and angular
motion, movement in a fluid medium and the use of
implements in athletic and exercise situations.
In addition to traditional study, students will
complete a qualitative analysis of an exercise or
sports related movement using principles learned
in the class.
