Exercise Physiology

Exercise Physiology is a one year course that allows students to explore the basic physiological functions of the human body and how it responds to exercise by investigating several topic areas: human anatomy & physiology, exercise physiology, exercise psychology, and biomechanics.

The course merges rigor with creativity and offers students the opportunity to learn through scientific inquiry and develop laboratory skills. Lab investigations will make up ~30-50% of instructional time. Students will be required to report on many laboratory investigations. Beyond concepts of human physiology, the inquiry-based laboratory investigations will focus on the reasoning skills used to generate arguments and test alternative hypotheses and theories using circumstantial, correlational, and experimental evidence. Such arguments and evidence are the essence of scientific literacy and lie at the heart of effective thinking in virtually all walks of life.
