  BSH: Health Science Major
  Exercise Science Concentration

Summary of the Changes: 
The following changes are being proposed in an effort to align the exercise science program at UNF with; the knowledge and skill requirements of professional certifications, requirements of the accrediting body (CAAHEP), and other exercise science programs in the State University System of Florida. Additionally, with the current budget situation, relying on other programs to offer enough sections of courses to meet our program needs has become problematic.
  Exercise Science Core Requirements Section of the Program Evaluation:
  1) Remove HSC 4730 Foundations of Health Science Research (3), as an alternative to          fulfilling the core research requirement leaving the more program specific PET 4625          Research in Sports Medicine (3) as the only option for fulfilling the research requirement.
  2) Remove HSC 3500 Epidemiology (3) and HSA 4553 Health Law & Ethics (3) from the          Exercise Science core requirements.
  3) Move the remaining 2 core requirements; HSC 3555 Diseases: Prev, Interv, & Treat (3) and       PET 4625 Research in Sports Medicine (3) to the major requirements section, eliminating           the core requirements section of the Program Evaluation.
      Exercise Science Major Requirements Section of the Program Evaluation:
  1) Replace the major requirement PET 3620 Introduction to Athletic Injuries (3) with the more         program specific course being developed, PET4XXX Human Injury: Mechanisms and                   Prevention (3).
  2) Replace the major requirement PET 3311 Kinesiology/Motor Behavior (3) with the more             program specific course being developed, PET 3XXX Functional Anatomy/Kinesiology (3).
  3) Add 2 new courses being developed, to the major requirement; PEP 3XXX Practical Skills in       Exercise Instruction (3) and PEP4XXX Practical Skills in Strength and Conditioning (3).          Feedback we have received from internship site preceptors, employers in the community,           and national certification test results has consistently indicated that enhancements to the           practical skills area of the curriculum is needed. These two new courses address that                 need.


  Combining the 6 credits from the core requirements and adding 2 new courses changes the major requirements from 39 credits to 51 credits.
  The exercise science free electives will remain at 9 credits.

Nutritional Epidemiology

The change will also allow the Program of Study for nutrition and dietetics graduate students to include one rather than two epidemiology courses. This APC requests three course changes:
  (1) Delete HSC 6505 Epidemiology and Disease Control as a course pre-requisite;
  (2) Revise the course description to reflect the discipline-specific (nutrition and dietetics) focus; and (3) Revise the course objectives to reflect the discipline-specific focus and to be in concert with the revised course description.

New Course Description:
This course teaches history, concepts, skills, and research designs and methods relevant to nutrition epidemiology. The course reviews nutritional epidemiology research related to mortality and morbidity and describes how this research relates to public health dietary recommendations and nutrition and dietetic practice.
