Discussion of lifestyle and health factors on activity behavior. Prerequisites: HLSC 214 or HLSC 215. Fall, Spring. Updated 18 April 2008 LEARNING OUTCOMES: . Remain the same. RATIONALE: The Health Science Department believes the information obtained in HLSC 265 would be of benefit to the student at the 300-level. Students in the program are heavily demanded in the science component of the curriculum at the 200 level (e.g. BIO 230, BIO 232, HLSC 214 and HLSC 215) and it was agreed upon by the department that this would allow a greater dispersion of the science requisites for the program. Furthermore, it is the only fitness/exercise component to the program and the shift to the upper level would allow for greater preparation and synthesis of material (from the 200-level) that will increase the depth of investigation and assurance of course and program outcomes. RESOURCES: None. ADVISORY OPINIONS: None. The change does not impact any other Program or Department.
