          Health and Physical Education



          Undergraduate programs lead to numerous professional opportunities in sport administration, recreation administration, health promotion, human, performance, teacher education and athletics, as well as graduate study.
          Human Performance Laboratory

          Human Performance Laboratory

          Department’s lab features EKG machines, a batting cage, computerized motion analysis, cardio-respiratory testing and more. 

          The Health and Physical Education Department provides students with a solid foundation of knowledge and skills to prepare them to be outstanding professionals in their field.  Students combine classroom work, experience with discipline-specific technology, hands-on participation, out-of-class projects, and pre-professional field work to create an educational experience that prepares them for careers in a number of health-, fitness-, and sport-related professions, and in education as teachers, coaches and more.

          Students tailor the focus of their study to align with their career goals.  The human performance track prepares students for careers in fitness instruction and personal training, athletic training, cardiac rehabilitation, and other exercise science-related disciplines.  Human performance majors who wish to pursue a career in physical or occupational therapy are also prepared for admission to those graduate programs.  The sport and recreation administration track prepares students for careers in areas such as sports marketing, facilities management, athletic management, recreational program administration, and more.  The health promotion track prepares students for careers in community, corporate, and public health and disease prevention.  The teacher certification track prepares students for careers in K-12 health and/or physical education.

          National trends toward the allied health professions, fitness, physical rehabilitation, recreation, and related disciplines have opened an extensive area of opportunity for today’s health and physical education graduates. The program is intentionally small to foster strong student-faculty relationships and personalized learning.

          Unleash your potential with a degree in Health and Physical Education.
