MSES 540. Applied Kinesiology. (3 Credits)

this course is an examination of human movement mechanics in applied settings. Focus will be placed on functional assessment, training and conditioning, rehabilitation, and injury prevention. Advanced application of arthrokinematics, musculoskeletal function, and relative biomechanics as they relate to evidenced based science will be the focus of class content. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: None

MSES 545. Cardiorespiratory Exerci Phys. (3 Credits)

this course will focus on the mechanisms involved in the adjustments the cardiorespiratory system is required to make to meet the metabolic demands of physical activity. Acute adjustments as well as chronic adaptations of the cardiorespiratory system will be examined in healthy and special populations. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: None

MSES 550. Seminar in Exercise Science. (3 Credits)

this course provides an analysis of current topics in the exercise sciences. Specific topics will be selected by the instructor(s) and the issues will be critically analyzed through readings, discussion, presentation and writing. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: None

MSES 560. Practicum in Exercise Science. (3 Credits)

Offered at: CUW

MSES 565. Neuromuscular Exerc Physiology. (3 Credits)

this course provides an examination of acute and chronic responses of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems to physical activity. The anatomy and physiology of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems will be covered. Methods of enhancing the function of the neuromuscular system in healthy and special populations will be explored. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: None

Offered at: CUW

MSES 569. Research Methods. (3 Credits)

this course provides an examination of the research methods commonly used to design, implement and evaluate research in the exercise sciences. The course includes the study of descriptive, quantitative and qualitative research methods, as well as techniques of literature review and reporting of research. Students completing this course should have a draft of a research proposal that can be used for either a thesis or graduate capstone project. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: None

Offered at: CUW

MSES 600. Thesis. (1-6 Credits)

this course is designed to help students hone their research skills through the implementation of a research proposal under the advisement of a faculty member. Students will propose a research project, get IRB approval, perform data collection, and analyze their data. Additionally, students will write up results in a complete thesis document. Students are expected to work semi-independently with their thesis adviser and must produce scholarly work. Students must also orally defend the thesis in a public forum. 1 to 6 variable credits.

Prerequisites: MSES 569 Research Methods.

Offered at: CUW

MSES 601. Graduate Capstone Project. (1-6 Credits)

this course will allow the student to propose and complete a rigorous project that is different than a traditional master's degree research oriented thesis. If the capstone project is proposed, approval must be obtained from a majority of the graduate level faculty in the Department of Health and Human Performance. This course would be taken in place of MSES 600 Thesis. 1 to 6 variable credits.

Prerequisites: MSES 569 Research Methods.

MSES 757. Bioenergetcs & Weight Control. (3 Credits)

this course is designed to provide an understanding of the metabolic processes affecting weight control as well as practical approaches to the clinical management of weight issues. Specific topics include the pathways of energy metabolism, hormonal regulation of energy balance and substrate utilization, effect of diets/supplements and physical activity on weight control as well as clinical effects of prolonged obesity. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: None

Offered at: CUW

MSES 820. Basic Statistics. (3 Credits)
