THE HEALTH AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION FITNESS ACTIVITY SERVICE PROGRAM

GENERAL EDUCATION COURSES

The Fitness Activity Service Program’s General Education courses focus on three learning outcomes: knowledge of various physical activities, developing skills related to those physical activities, and improving attitudes about physical activity in order that it might become a lifetime endeavor.

All freshmen or first-year students must successfully complete two (one hour) service courses during their first year. The following areas constitute the general life skills activity courses: aquatics, badminton, basketball, scuba diving, tennis, and weight training.

  • HPED 151             Aquatics and Fitness
  • HPED 152             Badminton and Fitness
  • HPED 153             Basketball and Fitness
  • HPED 154            Tennis and Fitness
  • HPED 155            Fitness for the Non-Traditional Student
  • HPED 156            Individualized Fitness Program for the Non-Traditional Student
  • HPED 157            Weight Training and Fitness

 (All Physical Education courses worth 1 credit hour are graded on a pass/fail basis).

**155.   Fitness For The Non-Traditional Student  (1 hour) 

**156.  Individualized Fitness Program For The Non-Traditional  Student  (1 hour)

**  Prior to enrolling in the courses, each student must receive approval from the Wellness Center and  the Department Chair  a written explanation of the problem from a physician including limitations and a suggested  plan to follow based on the medical problem or disability.
