Brooks College of Health (Undergraduate)

(Clinical & Applied Movement Sciences): Programs of Studies Changes (2 packages)- Approved

12/05/13: Passed

12/11/13: Approved

Log Number: 201308-64

Clinical and Applied Movement Sciences– Undergraduate  

 

Change a degree-major of an existing program
BS in Athletic Training - Athletic Training Major

Summary of the Changes:
We would like to remove the requisite (HSC 2400: First Aid Emergency Care) from the program of study. HSC 2400 is no longer recommended for students applying to the Athletic Training Program. This course is no longer recommended because students have relied on this course to provide them with the CPR/AED and First Aid certifications needed for admittance in to the Athletic Training program. Students may go to the American Red Cross or American Heart Association, etc to receive the needed certification instead of taking this class. Also, this course is not offered on a regular basis so many students who are admitted to the program do not take the class. This is not a required course in our program so it does not change the core classes within the AT major.

Clinical and Applied Movement Sciences– Undergraduate  

 

Change an existing minor                   
Clinical & Applied Movement Sciences Minor

Summary of the Changes:
We would like to add two classes (HSC 4612 Exercise Physiology for Health Science and PET 4627 Human Injury Prevention) to the CAMS minor in order to provide students pursuing the minor with additional course options. Based on feedback from BCH advising, some students who are interested in the minor have problems completing the minor due to the lack of available classes or "seats" in the classes for CAMS minor students. The "seats" in the current CAMS minor classes are first filled by students in the Athletic Training major and any additional seats can be filled by CAMS minor students. Due to the cap in most classes being set at 35 and the Athletic Training major cohorts ranging from 30-35 students, there are not many "seats" available to CAMS minor students. By adding, HSC 4612 Exercise Physiology for Health Science and PET 4627 Human Injury Prevention, students pursuing the CAMS minor will have additional options for coursework to complete the minor. Students may take either PET 3620 Introduction to Athletic Injuries or PET 4627 Human Injury Prevention but should not take both classes. The content is similar in these two classes, and therefore will only count as 1 class towards completion of the CAMS minor.

The minor is open to all UNF students except students pursuing the Athletic Training Major. The minor requires 23 credit hours. A grade of “C” or better is required for all minor courses. Majors in Health Science may count a maximum of two of the following courses towards the minor: PET 3312C Biomechanics, PET 4625 Research in Sports Medicine, PET 4627 Human Injury Prevention, or HSC 4612 Exercise Physiology for Health Science.
