New Courses and Programs of Study Changes (4 packages)

12/07/17: Passed

12/14/17: Approved

Log Number: 201708-34

Clinical & Applied Movement Sciences – Undergraduate


Change a degree-major - concentration of an existing program                       
Bachelor of Science in Health- Health Science Major – Exercise Science Concentration


Summary of the Changes:

This request is to remove HUN4414 Nutrition for Physical Activity and Health (3 credits) and to replace it with
a new course APK4XXX Bioenergetics (3 credits). The total semester hours for major requirements remains at
53 credits.
The Bachelor of Science in Health Exercise Science concentration Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) and the Committee on Accreditation for the Exercise Sciences (CoAES). The proposed Bioenergetics course was created based on CAAHEP/CoAES Standards and Guidelines that require instruction and evaluation of educational competencies related to specific subject content areas. The proposed course will offer the unique prospective that focuses on concepts specific to the Exercise Physiologist’s scope of practice within an interdisciplinary health care approach. The Program Faculty agree that an in-depth understanding of bioenergetic systems as they relate to exercise physiology is critical and will exceed accreditation standards. The Brooks College of Health Nutrition and Dietetics Department was involved in the course creation and has given approval for the course.
