Some science courses
have strange names that you may have never heard before. Take
"kinesiology" for example. What is it? Kinesiology is the physics
of the human body, or how the body functions when it's in
DC, of National University, teaches kinesiology in the bachelor of biomedical
science program. He says, "Kinesiology is the function of
joints and muscles -- how the body works. It can prepare you very
well for graduate health programs in virtually any field, whether
you'll be studying medicine, dentistry, chiropractic, or any other
health career degree."
For example, in Dr. Elder's class, you'll not only learn the
names and locations of muscles, but also:
Kinesiology is crucial for those who are planning a career in
sports medicine, orthopedics or chiropractic medicine. These are
fields where professionals must keenly understand the cause and
prevention of injury. For that reason, understanding anatomy is not
enough. They have to know how different types of motion put stress
on joints and muscles. You might say that kinesiology puts anatomy
in motion so that we can gain a better understanding of how the
human body is engineered.
At National University's bachelor of biomedical science program,
you can study kinesiology as well as your choice of over
over 40 courses in science, math, computer and communication
subjects specifically designed to prepare you for a career in
In this video, hear Daniel Richardson, PhD, assistant dean for
the College of Allied Health Sciences, explain the unique
advantages of National University's bachelor degree completion program
in biomedical science. A BS in biomedical science can be a
springboard to excelling in advanced degrees and a variety of
Dr. Richardson teaches botanical medicine to students in the BS
program, and also teaches pharmacology courses in National
University's graduate programs. This is one example of how our
undergraduate students benefit in learning directly from
graduate-level faculty members.

Konstantina Adams knew NUHS was her dream school after visiting
the campus on a high school anatomy tour. In this video she
shares her favorite aspects of the BS program, as well as her
experience in on-campus housing. Konstanina plans to use her bachelor's
degree in biomedical science as a foundation for a future
career in chiropractic medicine.
"You're being taught by professors who actually care and who are
part of the field that you are eventually going into. I've been
taught by chiropractors, I've been taught by naturopaths...people
who are passionate about what they're teaching." -- Konstantina
