Adjunct Faculty - Kinesiology courses

Holy Names University seeks to hire one or two adjunct faculty members to teach Introduction to Kinesiology (KINE 001) and/or Prevention and Care of Athletic Injuries (KINE 120) during Spring 2019. Depending on qualifications and schedules, these courses may be taught by two separate instructors or the same instructor.

The Kinesiology Program at HNU is a four-year course of study leading to either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science depending on the student's area of interest. The Kinesiology Program at HNU is a growing program that has recently become a unique, separate program of study at the University. Previously, Kinesiology was under the umbrella of the Biology Program. The academic year 2018-2019 marks the first year that students entering the University can select Kinesiology as their major.

The Introduction to Kinesiology course is a survey of introductory concepts in the discipline of kinesiology for individuals pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Kinesiology. The history of the discipline, current areas of research, challenges, and the future of the field will be discussed. Students will have the opportunity to explore professional opportunities in allied health fields and graduate or professional training.

The Prevention and Care of Athletic Injuries course provides a foundation for recognition, evaluation and treatment of basic injuries. The course is designed for Kinesiology majors and individuals interested in sport psychology, coaching, athletic training, personal training, and health and physical education. Activities will emphasize taping technique, mechanism of injury, physiology, pathology and anatomy.

Adjunct faculty are responsible for maintaining currency in their field(s) of expertise. Adjunct faculty focus primarily on providing instruction and/or student services. They may be required to participate in student learning outcomes assessment and are able to choose to participate in service activities at the University.
