The Department of Health, Human Performance and Athletics offers undergraduate majors in Athletic Training, Exercise Science, Health Education, and Physical Education.
The mission of the Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) is to provide a comprehensive, progressive educational and clinical foundation to prepare students for a career in athletic training. The curriculum and instruction of the Exercise Science Program utilizes a theory to practice model that integrates critical thinking with theory-based courses balanced with experiential learning opportunities. The program prepares students for further education and/ or employment in exercise and sport science, fitness, and health-related fields. Programs in Health Education and Physical Education, when combined with successful training through the Education Department, lead to basic teacher certification. The programs prepare students for entry level positions delivering health education or physical education in accordance with their respective national professional standards.
The HHPA Department also offers a Physical Education minor, a Coaching minor, and service courses in physical activity.
