Department of Health and Human Performance

The Department of Health and Human Performance (HEHP) is housed in the College of Charleston’s School of Education, Health, and Human Performance. The department offers majors in exercise sciencephysical education teacher education, and public health and a minor in coaching. HEHP also offers a wide range of activity courses like surfing, kayaking, and yoga, that enrich the overall student experience at the College of Charleston.

Beginning the 2023-24 academic year, the physical education teacher education program will no longer be available to incoming students (freshman and transfers). The program will undergo a teach out so that all currently declared students have an opportunity to complete their major requirements based on their academic advising plan.

HEHP provides excellent academic training, hands-on experiences, and mentored research to students who wish to pursue advanced studies in medicine (physician assistant, physician), physical therapy and other allied health professions.
