KINES 010 - Introduction to Kinesiology

Lower Division

This course introduces students to the academic discipline and profession of Kinesiology. It examines the historical events, philosophical positions, sociological theories, and contemporary science that concern the human being in motion. Particular attention is devoted to the cultural place and developmental potential of the corporeal actions known as play, game, sport, athletics, and exercise. American health behaviors (especially physical activity and food decisions) and how they relate to major U.S. public health issues are examined. The fundamentals of the major’s three tracks - sport and recreation management, health promotion, and exercise science - are introduced and explored. Students will be familiarized with Kinesiology’s main subdisciplines, their major research themes, and current career opportunities in the profession and the allied medical field.
