Kinesiology gives students the opportunity to study anatomy, exercise physiology, training principles, and athletic injuries. This course will provide students with a foundation in the scientific study of human movement and will prepare students for university programs in physical education, human kinetics, health sciences, and recreation. Students will be introduced to the muscular, skeletal, and energy systems in order to achieve a deeper understanding of the connection between physiology and human performance. Kinesiology is an academic course and could include tests, presentations, discussions, debates, and scientific experiments. Project-based activities and work with volunteers may be included.
