The Health and Human Performance department has five major programs and one minor.
The majors consist of Community Health, Physical Education, Health Education 5-12. Health Promotion and one in Exercise Science. Health Promotion evolved from the old Corporate Fitness major in the early 2000’s, while Exercise Science is designed as a pre-Physical Therapy program and acts as a feeder system to graduate schools in PT.
Both the Physical Education and Health Education programs have gone through NCATE reviews in 2001 and 2005 successfully. There is an NCATE Review CD-ROM available upon request from the Health & Human Performance office. There is one minor in the department in Community Health, though several individually constructed minors have been developed recently in Health Promotion and in Nutrition.
Currently the HHP department consists of full-time professors: Associate Professor Dr. Bridget Duoos, Assistant Professor Dr. Tim Mead and Assistant Professor Dr. Jolynn Gardner. We are in the process of hiring a full time, tenure track Exercise Physiology professor to start in the fall, 2012. Several adjunct professors also teach in the program.
