Kinetic and kinematic principles governing efficient human movement. Selected methods of analyzing human movement will be reviewed. Prerequisite: "C" or better in EXSC 224, EXSC 224L, PHYS 201 and PHYS 201L
EXSC 535: Biomechanics of Human Movement is an entry level undergraduate exercise biomechanics course and is an Exercise Science cognate course in the Exercise Science undergraduate curriculum. As a 500-level course it can be taken for credit by both undergraduate and graduate (M.S. or MPH) students. Since EXSC 535 is open to graduate students the instructor should have graduate faculty status. EXSC 535 is currently and has been taught in the past by staff and graduate students who do not have Graduate Faculty status. Changing EXSC 535 to EXSC 335 would eliminate the need for an instructor with Graduate Faculty status.
The original course prerequisites included EXSC 223, EXSC 224 and PHYS 201. The prerequisites were changed to: "C" or better in EXSC 224, EXSC 224L, PHYS 201 and PHYS 201L. EXSC 223 and EXSC 224 were originally 4 credit hour courses with a lab. These courses have since been spplit into 3 credit hour lecture and 1 credit hour lab courses. The prerequisites were changed to to reflect these changes. Furthermore, EXSC 223 and EXSC 223L are prerequisites for EXSC 224 and EXSC 224L. Removing EXSC 223 reduces the redundancy. Biomechanics of Human movement applies physics to describe human movement. The addition of the lab course PHYS 201L helps students who have limited understanding of physics to gain valuable practical experience with the laws of physics in order to be able to apply these laws and principles to Biomechanics.
Please change the course number in the "Changes to Course Information" section.
Please see the comment from the registrar, and re-submit when that is addressed.
Your proposal is being returned for the following reason(s):
• Need to add min grades for prereqs
• Please discuss prereq changes in Justification
• Remove Syllabus (not needed in this case)
If the above concerns are addressed, and the proposal reaches the Curricula and Courses Committee by noon on October 19th, it will be approved and included in those courses being recommended to the Faculty Senate for the upcoming Faculty Senate meeting. If the committee receives it after that date, it will be considered during the next Curricula and Courses review cycle. It can still make it into the 2019 Bulletin if I receive a corrected proposal by November 9th.
Please contact me if you have questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
John Gerdes, Chair803email@example.comFaculty Senate Committee on Curricula and Courses
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We have approved the proposal and are moving it forward to the Faculty Senate. It is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
Update will appear in the 1920 Undergraduate & Graduate Bulletin to be published 2.15.19.
