Kinesiology 2

This course will provide an in-depth study of the anatomy of the neuromuscular and respiratory systems as it relates to physical therapy. Emphasis is on the application of anatomy to an understanding of normal and abnormal human movement in exercise, locomotion, and other motor skills of daily living. Theory and techniques of manual muscle testing, stretching, and respiratory physical therapy techniques are topics included during the semester. Students take part in classroom laboratory practice sessions as they learn to apply the skills. Lab Fee

Pathology 1

Each unit will emphasize the signs and symptoms, as well as the physical therapy measures commonly employed in the treatment of these conditions. Lab Fee

Survey of the Bible

The Bible is the most widely distributed and most widely read book in the world. We will analyze the Hebrew Bible and the New Testaments in the areas of philosophy, theology, ethics, and spirituality, including its varying impact on ancient to contemporary thought. We will consider society in biblical times, culture, history, and archeology in discussing and interpreting the writings. We will make connections to world history as we critically examine how the Bible came to be and compare different methods of interpretation.

Topics in Philosophy

This course will discuss particular issues, topics, or authors in philosophy with a focus on introducing students to a cross-cultural perspective. Topics to be studied will change from semester to semester.

Cults and New Religious Movements

Countless groups, old and new, mark the religious landscape in our culture. Students will critically examine the characteristics of a cult, and compare different types of cults and movements in our study. Analysis for each religious group will focus on its history and development, primary theological doctrines, ethical issues, and apologetics in terms of how mainstream traditions have responded. The goal is to expand understanding of philosophic and religious concepts, and equip students to evaluate them.
