Department of Health and Human Performance

The Department of Health and Human Performance (HHP) is housed in the College of Charleston’s School of Health Sciences. The department offers majors in Exercise SciencePublic Health, and Health Services Administration and Management, as well as minors in Coaching and Health Informatics. HHP 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.

HHP 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.
