Health Education 254: Nutrition -- John Sparks, Assistant Professor
Food is a gift from God. He created our bodies to need food a few times each day. Learn about the role of food and nutrients in sustaining health and causing disease, how to analyze a diet from (Vitamin) A to (mineral) Zinc, and how recommend and encourage healthy food and diet choices to a client or patient. Your commitment to learning and applying the material will be essential because, as you will discover, where food is concerned, this world is truly broken. Therefore, we will also examine the Christian's response to complex food-related issues like hunger, malnutrition, obesity, and stewardship of the body.
Kinesiology 216: Medical Terminology -- Nancy Meyer, Professor, Women's Athletic Director
Fulfill the prerequisite for many allied health graduate programs and learn about basic medical word structure. Included are terms relating to anatomic structure, symptomatic and diagnostic tests, and operative and therapeutic procedures. Evaluation includes chapter quizzes, reading and writing medical records, a faith perspective paper, and a comprehensive final exam.
Philosophy 153: Fundamental Questions in Philosophy -- Professor Kevin Corcoran
Socrates said “the unexamined life is not worth living.” This course is an invitation to the examined life. In it you will consider such fundamental questions as these: What does it mean to be moral? Am I an immaterial thing, like God, or a material thing, like my body? Does God even exist? If so, how do God and the existence of human suffering, evil and death fit together?
Speech Pathology and Audiology 101: Intro to Speech Path & Audiology -- Brian Kreisman, Associate Professor
A general introduction to speech-language pathology and audiology. These rapidly growing interdisciplinary professions are devoted to helping individuals manage or overcome communication challenges. Communication is a God-given gift that allows us to be social beings. When people have difficulty communicating, it affects almost all aspects of their lives. Students will gain a general understanding of prevention, evaluation, and rehabilitation issues for persons with speech, language, and hearing disorders in clinical and educational settings.
Speech Pathology and Audiology 217: Speech Science -- Professor Judy Vander Woude
An introduction to speech physiology and the instrumentation used to measure physiologic aspects of speech. Topics include a basic understanding of the acoustic theories of speech production, experience in acoustic instrumentation, recording, and analysis equipment and procedures, an overview speech perception, and clinical applications of the speech science theories, instrumentation, and procedures.
Speech Pathology and Audiology 218: Hearing Science -- Brian Kreisman, Associate Professor
Study sound. How is sound created, heard and perceived? How does sound travel? How are pitch and loudness related to sounds? Do we filter sounds? Where are sounds coming from? Why do our ears “ring” after attending a loud concert or event? Does our sense of hearing impact our faith?
