Welcome!

The mission of the Department of Health and Human Performance is to gather, create and disseminate knowledge in the sub-disciplines of health and physical education, exercise science, sport administration and/or health promotion. Our students are trained to be leaders and educators who are models for teaching and learning.

Health & Human Performance degree programs are designed to prepare students for a wide variety of careers in areas such as fitness, personal training, coaching, sport and rehabilitation, allied health, public health, and sport & recreation management. We also offer health science concentrations for pre-professional programs in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and athletic training.

Whether you are an undergraduate or a graduate, you will be a part of a program where you can:

  • work with practitioners in the field to gain professional experience
  • conduct research to solve current problems related to health, physical education and/or sport management
  • apply your knowledge in real world situations
