Multidisciplinary Foundations of Physical Activity


Course description

In this course we’ll examine the relationship of physical activity to education, kinesiology, athletics, health, recreation and leisure. We’ll also discuss the contributions made by the sciences of physiology, motor learning and biomechanics.

Students gain an understanding of the historical, philosophical and psycho-sociological foundations of physical education and discuss a wide range of contemporary issues as they affect physical activity and active living.
