Health and Human Performance (HHP) programs prepare students to be leaders in the promotion of physically active and healthy lifestyles in today’s society. A diverse range of program offerings in areas of physical and health education teaching, health education and health promotion, sport management, fitness strength and conditioning, health and exercise science, allied health science, and nutrition and dietetics allow students to pursue careers in specialized content areas as well as broad-based programs of study. 

The academic programs in physical and health education and nutrition and dietetics lead to licensure and are accredited by their professional bodies. Nutrition and dietetics students must complete an internship after completing the degree to obtain certification.

The majority of HHP programs require 120 hours of coursework (with the exception of the teacher licensure program) and include extensive field experiences such as internships or student teaching. We also offer minors in contemporary content areas, including coaching, self-defense, sport management and exercise science.

See Radford University's Academic Catalog for a list of classes for each program.
