Course Descriptions


Textbook information for required and supplemental materials for all courses can be found at the Life University Bookstore link: http://life.textbookx.com


The numbers in parentheses listed following the course description, i.e. Credit Hours:  (2-1-2.5), are explained below:

  • The first digit is the number of lecture quarter credit hours for the course.
  • The second digit is the number of laboratory quarter credit hours for the course.
  • The third digit is the number of credit hours for the course.

A Credit Hour is based on the amount of time spent per week in scheduled activities. Each contact hour of classroom work per week for eleven (11) weeks, or its equivalent, is equal to one-quarter credit hour. Two contact hours of laboratory work per week for eleven (11) weeks, or its equivalent, is equal to one-quarter credit hour. A minimum of two contact hours of clinical work per week for eleven (11) weeks, or its equivalent, is equal to one-quarter credit hour. Additional clinical work is expected in professional programs to meet either patient or clinic needs and as directed by clinician of record. Online courses, hybrid, accelerated, and other non-traditional modes of delivery will demonstrate equivalent time and effort.

Chiropractic Principles and Philosophy

The courses within Chiropractic Principles and Philosophy provide a theoretical framework for understanding the application of the science of Chiropractic. Through the effective use of deductive reasoning, students begin to understand the vitalistic nature of the human body. The body was “preprogrammed” toward health and balance (homeostasis). Our purpose as Doctors of Chiropractic is to locate and correct any interference to the system in the body that controls and coordinates all functions – the nervous system.
