In the School of Health and Human Performance academic programs are offered through the Department of Dance, the Department of Exercise and Sport Science, the Department of Leisure Studies, and the Department of Public Health Education. Each department offers varied courses for all University students and programs of study leading to undergraduate majors and minors in their respective areas. Graduate degrees in Dance, Health Education, Leisure Studies, and Exercise and Sport Science are also offered. The School's programs are designed to meet specialized interests of students and also the requirements of state and national accrediting agencies and professional associations.

In the Department of Dance, the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree is offered with a major in Dance as a creative and performing art. The Bachelor of Science degree, with a major in Dance Education, is designed to lead to North Carolina licensure for teaching in public schools. A Bachelor of Arts degree in Dance is especially appropriate for students who wish to double major or who have other significant interests in addition to dance. A Dance minor and master's degree studies are also available.

The Department of Exercise and Sport Science offers majors in Exercise and Sport Science leading to the Bachelor of Science degree. One of three concentrations may be selected: Aquatics Leadership, Exercise Science and Sport Studies, or Teacher Education. The Teacher Education concentration prepares students for teaching in grades K-12. The Exercise Science and Sport Studies Concentration prepares students for careers in preventive and rehabilitative exercise and fitness. This concentration may be tailored to meet the needs and interests of students planning graduate study in medicine, occupational therapy, or physical therapy. The Aquatics Leadership concentration is designed to provide entry-level professional preparation for students who will be competent to design, deliver and improve effective aquatics programs for a wide-range of community settings. Graduate studies leading to the master's degree and the doctoral degree are also offered by this department.

In the Department of Leisure Studies, a major student may choose one of three areas of concentration, Leisure Services Management, Therapeutic Recreation, or Travel, Tourism, and Commercial Recreation. These concentrations lead to the Bachelor of Science degree. A Leisure Studies minor and graduate studies leading to the masterís degree are also available. The undergraduate program is fully accredited by the NRPA/AALR Council on Accreditation.

The Department of Public Health Education offers the Health Education major, leading to the Bachelor of Science degree, with concentrations in Community Health Education and School Health Education. The latter leads to K-12 teacher licensure. A Health Studies minor is available as well as graduate studies leading to the master's degree.
