Kinesiology & Applied Physiology Course Descriptions

01:377:406 Management in Exercise Science and Sport Studies (3)
Concepts of administrative processes, systems, and styles with application to various sport environments.  Includes program, facility, fiscal, and personnel management.

01:377:412 Advanced Sport Marketing (3)
Sport marketing strategy, design, and management.  Concepts and methods essential to identifying and analyzing marketing threats and opportunities and developing and evaluating marketing strategies.  Develops an understanding of the nature and role of marketing in the sport organization.Prerequisite:  01:377:311 Sport Marketing.

16:572:520 (16:137:505) Colloquium in Kinesiology and Applied Physiology (1)
A seminar style course designed to introduce students to different contemporary issues within the field of Kinesiology and Applied Physiology.

16:572:501 (16:137:515) Advanced Exercise Physiology (3)
This class will be taught as a joint graduate/undergraduate class with students in the undergraduate Exercise Physiology Option within the Exercise Science & Sport Studies BS major, and students within the Kinesiology and Applied Physiology concentration of the Masters of Business & Science degree.  Graduate students will have several assignments above and beyond the requirements for the undergraduates.  For example, they will be required to carry out a literature review within a selected sub-topic of exercise physiology (e.g., impact of extreme environmental conditions on the body’s response to intense physical exertion) and present an annotated bibliography summarizing and critiquing the results of the literature search.

16:572:503 (16:137:516) Exercise Biochemistry (3)
This class will be taught as a joint graduate/undergraduate class with students in the undergraduate Exercise Physiology Option within the Exercise Science & Sport Studies BS major, and students within the Kinesiology and Applied Physiology concentration of the Masters of Business & Science Program.  Graduate students will have several assignments above and beyond the requirements for the undergraduates, including conducting a thorough literature review on a specific topic related to Exercise Biochemistry and/or Sports Nutrition and providing article critiques. 

16:572:506 (16:137:517) Statistics and Research Design in Exercise Science (3)
Applied parametric and non-parametric descriptive and inferential statistics and research design for exercise science.  Heavy emphasis on the use of SPSS statistical software for multivariate analysis and multiple linear regression.

16:572:502 (16:137:518) Exercise Testing and Prescription (4)
Application of physiological principles and development of practical skills for fitness evaluation and exercise prescription. The course will emphasize pre-test screening and assessment and prescription fundamentals for cardiovascular fitness, muscular fitness, body composition, and flexibility. Issues related to special populations and peak performance will also be covered.

16:572:510 (16:137:519) EKG Use and Interpretation (3)
This class will be taught as a joint graduate/undergraduate class with students in the undergraduate Exercise Physiology Option within the Exercise Science & Sport Studies BS major, and students within the Kinesiology and Applied Physiology concentration of the Masters of Business & Science.  Graduate students will have several assignments above and beyond the requirements for the undergraduates.  For example, they will be required to attend clinical assessments of cardiac patients at area hospitals such as RWJ, St. Peter’s and JFK.

16:572:504 (16:137:520) Exercise Endocrinology (3)
Focuses on the effect of exercise, both acute and chronic, on the endocrine system. Included are discussions of topics such as athletic amenorrhea, overtraining, muscle hypertrophy, the role of hormones in performance, the role of exercise in modifying disease progression.

16:572:509 (16:137:521) Nutrition for Sports and Exercise (3)

16:761:507 (F) Comparative Physiology (3)
Topics of current interest in physiology from a comparative point of view using subject matter derived entirely from recent, original papers.
 
16:761:508 (S) Molecular and Cell Physiology
(3)
Lectures on membrane structure, transport phenomena, muscle, nerve, and cell organelles. Prerequisites: Course in physiology or cell biology and biochemistry, or permission of instructor.
 
16:761:513 (S) Cardiovascular Physiology (3)
The cardiovascular system in mammals. Coronary circulation, myocardial oxygen consumption, and cardiac arrhythmias. Merrill. Offered in even-numbered years.
