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 sport-related movement using principles learned in the class.
