EXPH 225. Intro to Exercise Science. (3 Credits)

involves understanding the realm of exercise science and the associated careers within exercise science. Students will discover career options ranging from exercise physiology, sport psychology, biomechanics, research, nutrition, graduate studies, medical school, and many more along with the necessary requirements, exams, and certifications to adequately prepare for the next step in a student’s future vocation. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: None

Offered at: CUW

EXPH 442. Exercise Testing and Prescription. (4 Credits)

focuses on the theoretical and applied knowledge required to conduct safe and effective graded exercise tests and fitness evaluations for healthy and "at risk" populations. Students will be expected to design effective exercise programs based on the evaluative tests. Clinical Exercise Physiology including basic electrocardiography, cardiovascular medications, and client/patient risk stratification is included in the course. Additional lab time required. Prerequisite or co requisite: EXPH 470. 4 credits.

Prerequisite: None

Offered at: CUW

EXPH 460. Internship. (1-6 Credits)

is designed to expose students to various aspects involved with health care and rehabilitation in either a clinical or non-clinical setting. Although the student is only at the pre-professional level, he/she can be involved in the observation, assistance, and discussion of patients' treatment and care, as the experienced professional deems approprite. 3-6 credits.

Prerequisite: None

Offered at: CUW

EXPH 470. Exercise Physiology. (4 Credits)

all semester course of the EXPH 470/471 sequence. Involves the application of beginning and more advanced anatomical and physiological processes to human movement, physical performance and rehabilitation. 4 credits.

Prerequisites: BIO 191/192.

Offered at: CUW

EXPH 471. Advanced Exercise Physiology. (4 Credits)

is an in-depth look at the acute and chronic adaptations of the body to physical stress. Energy metabolism, cardiorespiratory physiology, endocrine physiology, and body composition analysis are some of the areas of emphasis in the course. Laboratory participation involving maximal oxygen consumption testing, body composition analysis, blood lactate analysis, spirometry, and submaximal aerobic capacity tests is expected of all students. 4 credits.

Prerequisites: EXPH 470.

Offered at: CUW

EXPH 475. Seminar in Exercise Physiology. (2 Credits)

requires students to select research articles from current topics in Exercise Physiology. Students will analyze, evaluate and discuss the methodology of the selected research topics. In addition, the importance of the Institutional Review Board in conducting research will be covered as a preparation for EXPH 495 Senior Seminar's research project. 2 credits.

Prerequisites: MATH 205, EXPH 470.

Offered at: CUW

EXPH 480. Program Design and Application of Strength and Conditioning Principles. (3 Credits)

will examine the various anatomical and physiological aspects associated with strength and conditioning. This course will provide an application of exercise physiological and biomechanical principles to the design of strength and conditioning programs. The students will have opportunities to analyze and design a strength and conditioning program for athletes from various sports or for individuals with special needs. 3 credits.

Prerequisites: EXPH 470.

Offered at: CUW

EXPH 494. Exercise and Chronic Disease. (3 Credits)

is intended to examine the characteristics, physiological responses, and exercise adaptations of individuals with select chronic diseases. Includes neuromuscular disease, cardiopulmonary disease, musculoskeletal disease, cancer, and metabolic disorders. Emphasis will be on basic pathophysiology plus exercise limitations, responses, and adaptations for each disease state. 3 credits.

Prerequisites: EXPH 442.

Offered at: CUW

EXPH 495. Senior Sem for Exercise Physio. (3 Credits)

involves the design and conduction of an Exercise Physiology-related research study in collaboration with other students in the class. Students will submit an IRB application, conduct the research, analyze the data, and present the results. Potential exists for the submission of the research project to a regional or national Exercise Physiology organization for publication. Senior status required.

Prerequisites: EXPH 475 or consent 3 credits.

Offered at: CUW
