The Department of Health and Exercise Science (HES) teaches HES 100: Lifestyles and Health (1 hour) and HES 101: Exercise for Health (1 hour) to fulfill the basic requirement at the University. HES 100 is a lecture course that deals with the effect of lifestyle behaviors on various college health concerns, including nutrition, weight management, substance abuse , and sexually transmitted diseases. HES 101 is a companion course to HES 100. HES 101 is a laboratory course on physical fitness that covers cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and flexibility. Both courses are taught in half semester sections. Students must complete this requirement before enrolling in additional HES elective activity courses, and in any case, by the end of their second year.
The Department of Health and Exercise Science also teaches elective activity courses that are commonly taken by sophomores, juniors, and seniors. These courses offer valuable options in which students can learn a variety of ways to maintain physical activity while at college. The benefits of these courses also extend beyond the college years as activity skills and exercise interests are often followed for a lifetime All the 100-level courses listed below are for one (1) hour each and may be taken only once for credit, with the exception of HES 183 which may be repeated once.
