Kinesiology / Anatomy and Physiology Courses
|Kinesiology / Anatomy and Physiology|
Students in this course will learn about human anatomy, including the nervous, endocrine, reproductive, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, and urinary systems. In addition, students will learn about the skeletal system, including the bony landmarks and joints, the muscular system to include origin and insertion and function of the major muscles of the body, and the integumentary system to include skin and its function and pathologies.
Students will also learn about the study of biomechanics and muscles, including the principles of human movement and the description of structure, function, and kinesiology of the extremities. Topics include joints, bones, and muscles of the upper extremities and shoulders. Furthermore, students will learn the origin, insertion, and action of the skeletal muscles. Students will consider various exercise techniques to understand the kinetics of human motion.
