Health and Human Performance

The Health and Human Performance Department offers majors in health and physical education, exercise and sports science, health and wellness management and a graduate degree in clinical exercise physiology. Our students benefit from the university's state-of-the-art technology and modern sports facilities. With experienced instruction from a supportive faculty, we prepare our students for a variety of health-related careers, including: cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation and teaching, teaching health and physical education, health management, adapted physical education, coaching, and physical and occupational therapy. More importantly, we foster a commitment to lifelong physical activity and healthy lifestyles that enrich the lives of others.
