The Department of Health and Kinesiology strives to develop, through wellness clinics and academic courses in physical education and health education, an appreciation for the rules and laws of exercise and healthy living in a complex society. One function of the department is to train persons as physical education teachers and coaches. A second function is to train students in the area of health, wellness, and athletic training. These students will seek employment in non-school settings such as hospitals, fitness centers, and health clubs.
The Health and Human Performance major has an unstructured minor; therefore, any 18 hours from the major are appropriate.
