Spring, odd years PROPOSED COURSE NUMBER and/or TITLE: Abbreviated Course Title, if necessary: HLSC 320 Nutrition, Fitness and Health – 2 credits The relationship between physical fitness and nutrition is examined. The effects of diet on physical performance and misconceptions surrounding food, fluids, and supplements are studied. The role of nutrition in enhancing performance, achieving desired caloric balance, and preventing disease and injury is analyzed. Prerequisites: HLSC 214 or HLSC 215. Odd years PROPOSED COURSE DESCRIPTION: No changes. LEARNING OUTCOMES: Updated 18 April 2008 . Remain the same. RATIONALE: The Health Science Department believes that moving HLSC 320 from 4-credits to 2- credits will encourage students to take the course as an elective. We currently have limited flexibility with the number of elective credits students can take in the Health Science major; adding the current 4-credit HLSC 320 course as an elective would place the majority of our students at a 20 credit semester. Many students have expressed an interest in the course, but will feel overloaded with 20 credits. Students are more likely to take HLSC 320 as a 2-credit elective if their credit load for the semester were at 18 credits. RESOURCES: None. ADVISORY OPINIONS: None. Health Science elective course.
