Kinesiology

Post Baccalaureate Diploma

Students interested in this program will normally hold a bachelor of science (BSc) degree, or equivalent.

Program Requirements

Students are required to successfully complete of an approved program comprised of 30 units of upper division or graduate courses, including all of

BPK 304 - Inquiry and Measurement in Kinesiology (3)

This course covers the evaluation of measurement quality, test construction and assessment, and computer techniques for data capture and signal processing relevant to issues in Kinesiology. Prereq statistical knowledge will be put into practice when discussing typical research designs, modeling and hypothesis testing in kinesiology. Prerequisite: BPK (or KIN) 142, 201, 205, and STAT 201. Students with credit for BPK (or KIN) 304W may not take this course for further credit. Quantitative.

BPK 305 - Human Physiology I (3)

Deals with the physiology and pathophysiology of the cardiovascular, respiratory, and renal systems in detail. Prerequisite: BPK (or KIN) 205, MBB 231 (or 201), MATH 155 (or 152). Non-majors require BPK (or KIN) 205 (or BISC 305), MBB 231 (or 201) plus permission of the instructor. Students with credit for KIN 305 may not take this course for further credit.

BPK 306 - Human Physiology II (Principles of Physiological Regulation) (3)

Examines the regulation of body functions with an emphasis on the endocrine, gastrointestinal and neuronal systems. The course focuses on integration of physiological mechanisms at the cellular and organ levels. Examples of abnormal human physiology are used to illustrate important principles. Prerequisite: BPK (or KIN) 205, 207, MBB 231 (or 201), MATH 155 (or 152). Non-majors require BPK (or KIN) 205 (or BISC 305), MBB 231 (or 201) plus permission of the instructor. Students with credit for KIN 306 may not take this course for further credit.

BPK 326 - Functional Anatomy (4)

Pursues a systematic study of human anatomy with emphasis on functional applications. A comparative study of organs and body systems using laboratory dissections to provide an understanding of the three dimensional organization of the human body. Participation in all labs is required. Prerequisite: BPK (or KIN) 142, 201, 205 and at least 60 units. Behavioral Neuroscience Major and Honours students req BPK (or KIN) 142, 205, PSYC 280 and at least 60 units. Students with credit for BPK (or KIN) 324 or BPK (or KIN) 325 or KIN 326 may not repeat this course for further credit.

BPK 340 - Active Health: Behavior and Promotion (3)

Relationships among health, physical activity, and other health-associated behaviors are examined. In addition, the theories and models of health behavior, in the context of intervention and promotion strategies, are discussed. Pertinent background information is provided, concerning the influence of fitness on various disease states, as well as the epidemiology of health and exercise behaviors. Prerequisite: BPK (or KIN) 142, STAT 201 (or PSYC 201). Recommended: BPK (or KIN) 140. Students with credit for KIN 340 may not take this course for further credit.

and one of

BPK 301 - Biomechanics Laboratory (3)

A laboratory course on the quantitative biomechanical evaluation of human movement. Students will learn analysis techniques for quantifying kinematics and kinetics of body segments in athletes, normal populations, and special populations during activities such as walking and jumping. Experiments will look at the nature of muscular force generation, and the mechanical impedance properties of the musculoskeletal system, as well as patterns of muscle activation, using surface EMG. Prerequisite: PHYS 102 (or 121 or 126 or 141), BPK (or KIN) 201. Students with credit for KIN 301 may not take this course for further credit. Quantitative.

BPK 407 - Human Physiology Laboratory (3)

Experiments dealing with the nervous, muscular, cardiovascular, respiratory, and renal systems are covered. Prerequisite: BPK (or KIN) 305 and 306, one of which must already have been completed and the other can be taken concurrently. Students with credit for KIN 407 may not take this course for further credit. Quantitative.
