      The mission of the Department of Health and Physical Education is to provide quality educational opportunities related to movement and health, provide leadership experiences through service, and promote the total well being of students not only for a career but for a lifetime.

        The Department of Health and Physical Education (HPE) offers programs in secondary and all-level certification with specialization in Physical Education and a curriculum for majors on a non-certified basis. Courses are also offered in Physical Education for specialization in elementary teacher certification. An athletic training program leading to state licensure is available through the Sports Medicine Program within the Department of HPE. Specific course requirements for becoming an athletic trainer may be obtained in the office of the Director of Sports Medicine. Exercise and Sport Studies majors are required to exhibit departmental standards of health-related fitness. Exercise and Sport Studies majors are also required to participate in leadership/professional development activities. Specific requirements may be obtained in the Department of Health and Physical Education.

        The purpose of Physical Education activity courses is to develop skills and attitudes that will carry over into later life as well as develop physical fitness in the student. Repetition of any of these courses for credit must be approved by the Head of the Physical Education Department.
