HPHP: Health Promotion

The Department of Health Promotion and Human Performance (HPHP) in the Jerry and Vickie Moyes College of Education (MCOE) offers programs that promote lifelong wellness from a variety of disciplines. The teaching environment, supported by faculty with diverse expertise, creates quality-learning communities that offer to undergraduates exceptional educational experiences. The newly remodeled state-of-the-art facilities – including fully equipped human performance exercise biochemistry, nutrition and athletic training/physical therapy laboratories, a networked computer lab, stress relief center, swimming and hydrotherapy pool, and ample indoor and outdoor recreational, fitness, sport and activity areas, and indoor climbing wall – provide an outstanding arena for student instruction. With a curriculum designed to develop professional knowledge and skills, graduates from the department are prepared to work in a variety of educational, health, and fitness settings. The Health Promotion major is a flexible and interdisciplinary program of studies dually housed within HPHP and the Health Administrative Services (HAS) program in the Dr. Ezekiel R. Dumke College of Health Professions.
