Health and Human Performance plays a vital role in the development of all students. The discipline is rooted in the premise that human beings are created in the image of God and that, for the Christian, the body is the very residence of the Holy Spirit.
The Health and Human Performance program helps prepare students for careers in clinical exercise physiology, strength and conditioning, physical education, and community recreation.
Additionally, the major also produces the prerequisites for graduate study in a variety of related fields such as kinesiology, pedagogy, sports management and advanced medical or clinical degrees.
