Course Details

Course Code: SPHS507 Course ID: 4239 Credit Hours: 3 Level: Graduate

The purpose of this course is to provide the student with an understanding, appreciation, and ability to analyze human movement using a biomechanics approach. This course will expose the student to the laws and principles governing human motion. Emphasis will be placed on the analysis of exercise and sport movements. Research with applications to a variety of sport, exercise, and clinical settings will also be included to provide the student with knowledge of current topics of interest in the field.

After successfully completing this course, students will fulfill the following Learning Objectives (L.O.):

Each student will:

1. Apply functional anatomy, basic mechanical concepts, and physiological responses to exercise, human movement, and sport skill sets.

2. Evaluate external and internal biomechanics to sport specific movements.

3. Analyze the relationships between Newton’s Laws in terms of work, energy, and power within exercise and sport movement.

4. Interpret human movement of skill performances using advanced techniques in Biomechanical Analysis.

5. Construct qualitative biomechanical analysis data into practical feedback and sport specific curriculum to improve training and technique, and to prevent injury development.
