  • Health & Physical Education

    The Health and Physical Education Department prepares students who are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life and promoting physical fitness and wellness through rewarding careers in health and physical education, athletic training, exercise science and coaching. Intensive classroom settings that offer hands-on learning and personal attention from experienced, knowledgeable professors combined with mentorship opportunities from area health care professionals provide a unique combination of theoretical, practical and highly relevant education. Comprehensive clinical experiences complement classroom training by exposing students to real-world settings through a variety of on- and off-campus clinical sites.

    Students also earn valuable professional experience by participating in student teaching, internships and program-related clubs and associations, such as Health and Physical Education Club, Dragons 4 Wellness and the Athletic Training Student Association. The combination of theoretical and practical learning with professional growth and development opportunities prepares students for success in national certification exams, graduate school and a variety of health care professions, including teachers, trainers, coaches and fitness-related roles.
