255-259. Topics in Kinesiology
In-depth study of selected topics of current interest in the field of kinesiology. Offered subject to
the availability of faculty. See Topics Courses.

290/390. Individual Project: See Additional Academic Programs, All-College Independent
Study Courses 290/390.

308. Human Biomechanics
This course is an advanced study of mechanical principles, both kinetic and kinematic, as they
apply to human motion. Specific topics include various classes of anatomic levers and pulleys,
torque, eccentric force, mechanical advantage, laws of motion as they apply to human
movement, mechanical loading, linear and angular motion, effects of friction, equilibrium, the
forces of gravity and reaction forces. Inclusion of experiential learning through laboratory

activities. Prerequisites: KIN 207, KIN 309.

309. Anatomy of Human Movement
Study of the anatomical and neuromuscular factors associated with human movement. Includes
connective tissue and skeletal system physiology, identification of major musculoskeletal
structures (bones and bony landmarks, origins and insertions for major muscles, muscle groups,
major tendonous/ligamentous structures), joint movements and muscle actions. Practical
application of anatomical and neuromuscular principles to human movement via a kinematic
analysis of a motor skill. Inclusion of experiential learning through laboratory

activities.Prerequisite: KIN 207 or Instructor permission.

310. Nutrition for Health and Performance
In-depth study of the role of nutrition in health promotion and disease prevention. Topics
include ingestional physiology, regulation of food intake and energy balance, biological roles of
macro- and micro-nutrients, nutrient dietary reference intake values and food sources, eating
disorders and the Female Athlete Triad, as well as nutritional strategies for athletes to promote

exercise performance. Includes nutritional analyses. Prerequisite: KIN 207. Alternate years.

311. Methods for Individual Sports
Designed for those interested in teaching individual sports and lifetime activities in public
schools and community recreational settings. Course emphasis on analysis of skills, and the
development of teaching and assessment materials including use of computer technology. Use of
class discussions, presentations, small group and peer teaching. Prerequisite: Kinesiology major

or minor and junior standing. Alternate years.

315. Physiology of Exercise
In-depth study of the human responses to exercise and exercise training, including: substrate
metabolism and energy production during exercise, cardiorespiratory and neuromuscular
function during acute exercise, cardiovascular and neuromuscular adaptations to exercise
training, endocrine responses to physical activity, and thermoregulation. Introduction to current
scientific methodologies and the development of practical skills through experiential laboratory

activities. Prerequisite: KIN 207 or Instructor permission.

318. Methods for Team and Dual Sports
Designed for those interested in teaching team and dual sports in public schools and
recreational settings. Course emphasis on analysis of skills, and the development of teaching
and assessment materials including use of computer technology. Use of class discussions,
