Mission of Health, Wellness and Sport

The mission of the Department of Health, Wellness, and Sport (HWS) is to prepare students for careers in a variety of health, wellness and fitness programs, sport marketing and management, as well as graduate studies. The HWS Department plans to offer four distinct programs of study: Bachelor of Science in both Wellness and Exercise Science (WES) and Pre-Professional Health Science (PPH); a Bachelor of Arts in both Sport Marketing and Management (SMM) and Public and Community Health (PCH).

The HWS Department is committed to providing students with an instructional program of high quality that involves the discovery, interpretation and application of knowledge related to the disciplines within the department. HWS is dedicated to providing an education that brings discipline to mind and body in the pursuit of knowledge and in the development of a healthy lifestyle. A central and unifying mission for the department is to promote the value of multidimensional wellness as a means of enhancing quality of life. In HWS we provide experiences for students that will help them develop as whole persons who emerge as champions of wellness and embrace lifelong learning in a changing society.
