In the School of Health and Human Performance academic programs are offered through the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, the Department of Dance, the Department of Exercise and Sport Science, the Department of Public Health Education, and the Department of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism. 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, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Public Health Education, Recreation, Parks, and Tourism, 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.

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders provides opportunities for the study of normal speech, language, and hearing and the associated disorders, leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology. The courses offered in this program are pre-professional and prepare the student for further study at the graduate level. Faculty and students in Communication Sciences and Disorders provide services to the University Speech and Hearing Center and the Augmentative Communication Systems Laboratory, and engage in cooperative work with area schools, hospitals, and other human service agencies. In addition, the faculty and students in Communication Sciences and Disorders are actively involved in research.

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 significant scholarly interests in 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.

The Department of Public Health Education offers the Health Education major, leading to the Bachelor of Science degree, with concentration in Community Health Education. A Health Studies minor is available as well as graduate studies leading to the master's degree.

In the Department of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism 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 master's degree are also available. The undergraduate program is fully accredited by the NRPA/AALR Council on Accreditation.

Further details about specific major programs can be found in the individual Department listings on the following pages. Graduate degree programs and graduate level courses are described in The Graduate School Bulletin.
