Human Performance & Nutrition

Subject Name: 
Course Number: 
UMass Amherst
Designed to engage students in: 1. Fundamental questions, ideas and methods of analysis, 2. Application of these methods to real world problems, 3. Critical thinking through inquiry, problem-solving and analysis and 4. Awareness of how race, ethnicity and social "class" impact health and wellness. This course provides the base of knowledge required to understand the role of diet and exercise in optimizing athletic performance AND overall health. In addition, students gain the skills necessary to critically evaluate information and products related to human performance with "open-minded" skepticism. (Gen.Ed. BS)
Discussion sections do not begin until the SECOND week of classes.

If you cannot enroll, please check back after the middle/end of July when remaining seats will become available to Kinesiology majors first and then to non-kin majors.
