Course Description

Presents basic principles of anatomy, physiology, and exercise science. Introduces terminology, concepts, basic chemistry, cell structure and function, tissues, metabolism and the cardiovascular, pulmonary, skeletal, muscular, endocrine, and nervous systems. Requirement: Acceptance to the Exercise Science Program or instructor permission. Audit available.

Addendum to Course Description

The format of this class will be lecture, practical lab work, class discussion, and/or presentations. You are encouraged to ask questions and expected to engage actively during lab sessions. Study sessions outside of regular class time may be scheduled.

Intended Outcomes for the course

Upon completion of the course students should be able to:

  1. Identify and label structures of the major organ systems in the body including: cell, skeletal bone and muscle, connective tissues and membranes, nervous, endocrine, blood, cardiovascular and respiratory.
  2. Define terms related to anatomical regions, directions, planes and sections, body cavities and membranes.
  3. Identify and label major bones of the body including: clavicle, scapula, sternum, humerus, carpals, ulna, radius, femur, fibula, tibia, tarsals, vertebrae, ribs, sternum and cranium.
  4. Label and identify major muscles of the body such as: trapezius, pectoralis major, latissimus dorsi, biceps, triceps, rectus abdominis, internal and external obliques, erector spinae, gluteus maximus, quadriceps, hamstrings, adductors, abductors, and gastrocnemius.
  5. Name the major organ systems and identify key functions of each.
