HWP 223 - Physical Activity and Health

An introduction to the role of physical activity on overall health. Emphasis is placed on physiological responses within the body during exercise, adaptations to training, and the relationship between physical activity, sedentary behavior and health. Students gain skills in designing safe and effective physical activity programs and assessing the efficacy of those programs and learn about physical activity on a societal level (current population levels of physical activity, the built environment related to physical activity, and the sociocultural norms surrounding physical activity). Potential careers pertaining to physical activity and health are explored. Fall and Spring.
