Exploring the Major A student interested in a Health and Human Performance major should contact a Department faculty member as early as possible to explore areas of concentration. (See Course Sequencing Considerations below.)

Admission to the Major— An interview with department faculty members and a departmental recommendation are required for admission to the Health and Human Performance major.

Course Sequencing Considerations (in order to complete degree requirements within eight terms) A student with an interest in Physical Education as a major is advised to register as early as the first term for HHP 125, BIO 101, and HLT 100. These courses are foundational to continued work in the major. Health and Human Performance major courses are taught in alternating years, so it is important to begin the sequence as early as possible. Junior standing is preferred for HHP 492, but this course may be taken in the senior year as well.

Proficiency Requirements for Retention in and Completion of the Major A grade of C (2.0 GPA) or higher in each required Health and Human Performance major course and in each prerequisite and collateral course is required for continuation in the major. Students not receiving a grade of C or higher may repeat that particular course to raise the grade while remaining in the major program. Certification in First Aid/CPR must be completed by the first term of the Senior year. May be met by taking HLT 109: Comprehensive First Aid.

Other Considerations or Recommendations Students majoring in Health and Human Performance are expected to hold a Labor position for at least one term within the Health and Human Performance Department, Seabury Center, or Intramurals.
