Why HPERS?

The areas of health, physical education, recreation and sports is one of the fastest growing industries today. Due to knowledge about the benefits of healthy and active lifestyles
becoming more common place, the field has grown and expanded rapidly over the years.
All ages, from adolescents to the elderly are spending billions of dollars and taking part in the millions of others who have chosen to increase their own mental,
emotional and physical health through programs and activities.

Shepherd University's HPERS Department is here to offer you a great opportunity to take part in a revolutionary field, where you can integrate your own passions,
 with those of a needed profession!
