SPEX 132 Health & Wellness (5)The course provides students with a general overview of the physical, social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual and environmental dimensions of health and their application to personal wellness.
SPEX 211 Responding to Emergencies (5)The course provides students with the knowledge and skills to respond to injury sustained during training and sport performance and to sustain life until medical help arrives following a sudden acute event as a result of training or performance.
SPEX 231 Sport & Exercise Physiology (5)The course introduces students to the acute responses and chronic adaptations of the body to the stresses of training using a mechanistic approach so that students first understand the details of how response and adaptation occur so they will be more likely to predict and control the response. Includes associated lab. Prerequisites: CHEM 121 and CHEM 122, BIOL 200 and BIOL 210.
SPEX 312 Nutrition for Sport & Exercise (5)The course addresses the nutritional requirements and practices of individuals involved in high-level human performance. Students will be develop an understanding of nutrient metabolism required for training, the principles of a healthy competitive diet, the role of ergogenic aids, and the interaction of body composition, nutrition, and performance. Prerequisites: SPEX 231
SPEX 313 Biomechanics & Motor Learning (5)The course presents the mechanical principles pertinent to the understanding of human motion and the procedures for application of Newtonian mechanics to human movement analysis through creation of biomechanical models using three-dimensional and two-dimensional video and accompanying analog data. Includes associated lab. Prerequisites: High School Physics or PHYS 105
SPEX 321 Care & Prevention of Athletic Injuries (5)The course develops the knowledge and skills necessary to prevent, evaluate, and remedy athletic injuries using short-term treatment techniques and modalities. Students become familiar with various protective devices, preventative strategies of taping, wrapping and padding, and short-term treatment actions including massage, ice, heat, and numerous electrical and mechanical devices, all presented to prepare students for the NATA Athletic Trainer certification exam. Includes associated lab. Prerequisites: SPEX 211
SPEX 322 Principles of Metabolic Training (5)The course reviews and applies anatomical, biomechanical and physiological principles to develop general and sport-specific metabolic training programs that improve fitness and athletic performance. Includes associated lab. Prerequisites: SPEX 231 and SPEX 312
SPEX 331 Exercise for Rehabilitation (5)The course provides students with the basic concepts of cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs and the knowledge and skills needed to design, implement and asses progress of rehabilitation programs to return individuals to a healthy state, full functional fitness or athletic performance. Prerequisites: SPEX 231
SPEX 411 Fitness Testing & Technology (5)The course provides a review of the theoretical constructs of exercise physiology and the hands-on training in testing technology to enable students to competently assess levels of fitness in low-risk to high-risk individuals. The course includes use of informed consent, health and wellness screening, and protocols for body composition, resting metabolic rate, cardiovascular and muscular fitness, flexibility, aerobic capacity, anaerobic power, and numerous sport-specific fitness tests, all presented to prepare students for the ACSM Health Fitness Instructor certification exam. Includes associated lab. Prerequisites: SPEX 231 and SPEX 313
SPEX 421 Sport & Exercise Psychology (5) The course examines the relationship of psychology to sport and exercise. Topics include application of learning principles, social psychology, personality variables, psychological assessment, sport performance and exercise adherence. Includes associated practicum.
SPEX 499 Professional Issues in Sport & Exercise (3-5)Senior SynthesisSenior students majoring in Sport & Exercise Science will select one of ten topics related to current professional issues in sport and exercise science (e.g., childhood obesity, racial and ethic presisposition to diabetes, etc.) and conduct extensive research into viable solutions for the problems incorporating. The results of the investigation will be presented as a 30 minute Power Point oral presentation that summarizes a written manuscript both of which include an introduction to the problem, a review of literature, a proposed solution, relevant data to support the proposed solution that must include experiences drawn from their internships, responses to interviews of practicing professionals, salient information form the scientific literature, and constructs or frames of reference drawn form their Core and major curricula. As separate submission, students will write and expository paper reflecting on their SU education, the problem investigated and the impact of both on their future as a professional.
SPEX 495 Internship (1-5)Allows for a practical clinical opportunity through assigned work experience. Assignments are arranged with local, national or international organizations and include all field specializations. Position descriptions are based on the needs of the cooperating organization. Work hours, calendar, remuneration and related benefits are negotiated. A supervisor/mentor serves as the author of specific assignments and participates in a final evaluation supported by journal and portfolio.
