The course will study pragmatic and field based material related to human anatomy, kinesiology and biomechanics. Primary focus will be applied to the study of major muscle and joint groups as they are involved in the science of human movement. Students will be required to learn the basic neuro-anatomical structures and functions of the musculoskeletal system. Students will also learn the basic mechanical laws that govern movement and apply these principles to common movements in sport, exercise, dance, and other physical activities. Prerequisite: Sophomore status and Biology 115.
