Health and Human Sciences

The Health and Human Sciences (HHSC) major provides students an opportunity to learn about the human body and health by combining classroom training with state-of-the-art hands-on laboratory experiences.  Students in the department of HHSC are interested in kinesiology, exercise science, understanding chronic disease, use of exercise and nutrition to promote health, or the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.  With the variety of class offerings, laboratory experiences, and internship opportunities, this major will prepare students for graduate studies in physical therapy, occupational therapy, exercise science, nursing, physician assistant, public health, entry-level graduate programs in athletic training, and other health professions.
