Health and Recreation

The health and education program offers a bachelor's degree that will prepare you for a career in federal, state, commercial, campus, military, community and non-profit recreation agencies. We offer two tracks, allowing you to concentrate on where your interests lie: the recreational tract with emphasis on recreational leadership; or the health tract with emphasis on health and wellness promotion. Most of our classes are small, which means you'll learn from faculty instead of from teaching assistants.

In addition to the course work, the program aims to develop the physical, mental, social and emotional well-being of our health and recreation majors. Those are the very traits you'll help others cultivate in themselves once you're a working professional. Our program fosters leadership skills and the principles of citizenship as well.
