The Department offers four BS degree programs: Athletic Training, Kinesiology, Health and Physical Education (with concentrations in PK-12 Licensure and in Health Promotion), and Therapeutic Recreation. No students are being accepted into the Athletic Training major. A variety of activity classes, with the goal to develop fitness and skills in life-time sport and recreation, are offered to all students. Classes are structured to provide students with knowledge about current health problems and to help them develop behaviors and attitudes that will aid in maintaining a state of optimal health and well-being throughout the life-span.

The Health, Athletic Training, Recreation, and Kinesiology Department offers minors in coaching, HPE PK-12, health education, healthcare studies, and outdoor education.
