does this syllabus indicate bcpm or kinesiology?

would you call this course anatomy, kinesiology (= study of movement in exercise), phys ed? just want to make sure. i took this at an extension school which sometimes lists random departments / categories for its courses. it did list this as physiological science.


Course Description
: This course is designed to give students a thorough understanding of the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system.

Goals & Learning Objectives:
· Know the names and locations of bones, excluding the head
· Know the names and locations of skeletal muscles
· Know plane and axes of motion
· Know body actions
· Identify which joint(s) a muscle acts upon
· Be able to identify which muscles and joints are involved in any given movement/activity

Required texts:
Dynatomy by Whiting and Rugg, Human Kinetics,
ISBN 0-7360-3682-2
Atlas of Human Anatomy by Frank H. Netter, 4th edition.
ISBN# 13 978-1-4160-3385-1
Recommended text: Strength Training Anatomy by Frederic Delavier 2nd edition,
Human Kinetics, ISBN 0-7360-6368-4

Homework Assignments (3) - two movement labs and one movement analysis homework: Movement analysis of some traditional strength training exercises.
Final Exam (1): Contains 20 true/false questions, 30 fill-in-the-blank, and 50 multiple choice questions on movement analysis.

It's worth a try. It sounds like BCPM, but it's up to the application association?
 
If it's in the Phy Sci department, it'll probably be okay. I'd call it "anatomy" to be safe. Just speaking from my own experience here :thumbup:

thanks for the feedback guys! i was doubtful at first because the parts below (by the way i got a neutral grade in this class so i don't care if it is BCPM or not - i just want to classify it correctly):

Be able to identify which muscles and joints are involved in any given movement/activity

i considered classifying it as kinesiology (not BCPM) is because "a good portion" (majority? hard to say) of the the class involved movement analysis of the muscles involved when exercising like doing squats.

the class references a lot of anatomy - but that anatomy is only referred in the scope of i.e. what muscle do you use to throw a discus? most of the grade depended on second half stuff...

i'm curious to hear what everyone thinks

What's the name of the course? KINS 100 Anatomy?
 
What's the name of the course? KINS 100 Anatomy?

duh i should have given that (although amcas determines designation not by department but content)

Applied Anatomy and Biomechanics
Physiological Science X 452 | 4 units | Fee through December 10: $575 | Fee after December 10: $635
This course provides fitness instructors with an understanding of musculoskeletal anatomy and the application of basic biomechanical principles to the moving body. This application allows fitness instructors to analyze a movement and identify poor mechanics that could contribute to injury, design exercises for particular muscle groups, and more safely and effectively advise on the use of exercise equipment.
Prerequisite: A basic course in human biology or anatomy and physiology, or consent of department. Required course in Certificate Program in Fitness Instruction.

i think they call it "applied" because the anatomy is applied to exercise movements i.e. if you squat are your hamstrings contracting eccentric or concentrically?
