Why Major in HESS?
The purpose of the Department of Health, Exercise, and Sport Science (HESS) is to provide an exemplary educational environment and experiences leading to acquisition of skills, knowledge, and attitudes within the domains of human movement and healthful living. Competence within each of these areas contributes to preparation of principled leaders for positions of leadership within their respective fields.
HESS now offers degree programs in Sport Management, which creates opportunities for students interested in the field to learn principles of marketing, promotions, selling, and other aspects of sports. Students will also find being taught by faculty who have experience within the sports industry and some who are still active in the field is an invaluable tool towards career development.
