Health and Human Performance Division


The Health and Human Performance Division at Indiana Wesleyan University prepares students to meet the ever increasing demands of society for professionally trained people in the areas of education, sports, fitness, health, recreation, management and athletics. Areas of development such as neuromuscular skill, organic fitness, intellectual awareness, social concern, emotional release, and spiritual formations will be emphasized. God created man as an integrated whole being, and the professionals in this division are afforded a great opportunity to reach all aspects of the whole person. Each individual will be challenged to develop professionally and in turn be prepared to serve others upon completion of the degree.

Eight degrees are offered within the Division of Health and Human Performance. They are a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Health and Fitness, Athletic Training, Exercise Science, Physical and Health Education-secondary certification (5-12) or all grade certification (P-12), Recreation and Camp Administration, Sports Management, and Sports Ministries.
