Students in an Associate in Arts program are required to earn two credit hours from Health, Physical Education and Recreation (HPR). The required credits must be earned through a course that is taught through our Wellness Center and includes physical activity.
Through classroom teaching, the academic foundations presented in the applied programs of the department strengthen individuals to engage in applied arts and human sciences. Upon transferring to a four-year institution and majoring in any of the areas of health, physical education and recreation, students are further prepared for career opportunities in meeting the complex educational, health, leisure and sport science needs of society allowing them to improve upon the complex and dynamic needs for individuals, groups, families, organizations and communities within the state, region and nation.
Wellness is a state of health more positive than the mere absence of disease. Wellness is the conscious and deliberate effort to stay healthy and achieve the highest potential for physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual well-being.
