As a student in the HPED major your course work and field experiences will prepare you to teach health and physical education. Our graduates are qualified for K-12 teaching certification or to work in a variety of non-teaching fields such as Coaching, Correctional Settings, and Aquatics.

In addition, our HPED courses help our non-majors meet the Wellness General Education requirement while assisting students in developing a personal wellness lifestyle. These courses focus on general wellness and encourage students to improve their overall health and optimal well-being.

Finally, our Health and Physical Education Department also offers academic minors in both Coaching and Aquatics.
