  • Prerequisites:

    BPK 142 and either BPK 105 (with a grade of C or higher) or BPK 205.



For students interested in physical education, health science professions and liberal arts. Brief discussions on applied anatomy, aging, common dysfunctions and diseases enable students to appreciate the relationship between structure and function. Available only through correspondence, this course will not be counted as an upper level optional course for a major in kinesiology. Students with credit for BPK 326 may not take this course for further credit.


The course is 13 weeks in length. It is offered in a Blended format. Most elements are asynchronous and offered online. Five tutorials (2 hours each) are held synchronously; these will be offered via Zoom during periods of remote learning and held in-person if health and safety recommendations permit.

Topics covered include:

  • Introduction to the study of anatomy: planes, terms of direction, and definitions
  • Properties of bones and joints
  • The axial skeleton and musculature
  • The upper limb
  • The lower limb
  • The cardiovascular system
  • The nervous system
  • The respiratory system
  • The digestive system
  • The urinary system
  • The reproductive system


At the end of BPK 325, successful students will be able to:

  • Discern and describe structures within and across anatomical regions and systems, linking structure to function.
  • Describe anatomy accurately and accessibly to diverse audiences, including colleagues, clients, patients, and friends and family outside of this course and the university.
  • Predict the clinical outcome of injury to specific structures and use clinical symptoms and signs to diagnose common conditions.


  • Quizzes (5) 10%
  • Assignments (2) 30%
  • Midterm Exam 25%
  • Final Exam 35%

Department Undergraduate Notes:

It is the responsibility of the student to keep their BPK course outlines if they plan on furthering their education.

Registrar Notes:


SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html


Teaching at SFU in spring 2022 will involve primarily in-person instruction, with safety plans in place.  Some courses will still be offered through remote methods, and if so, this will be clearly identified in the schedule of classes.  You will also know at enrollment whether remote course components will be “live” (synchronous) or at your own pace (asynchronous).

Enrolling in a course acknowledges that you are able to attend in whatever format is required.  You should not enroll in a course that is in-person if you are not able to return to campus, and should be aware that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes.

Students with hidden or visible disabilities who may need class or exam accommodations, including in the context of remote learning, are advised to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (caladmin@sfu.ca or 778-782-3112) as early as possible in order to prepare for the spring 2022 term.
