The Department of Health and Human Performance offers a Physical Education Major which includes the following: Physical Education (EC-A Teaching Certification), Physical Education (MC-A Teaching Certification), Exercise Science Concentration (comprehensive - requires no minor), Wellness/Fitness Management Concentration (liberal arts), and Community Health Promotion Concentration. Minors are available in Health Education, Coaching, Sports Management, Health and Human Performance, and Health (liberal arts).

 

HHP Mission Statement

The mission of the Health and Human Performance Department is to provide students with a knowledge base, creating a positive attitude and lifelong skills concerning the seven dimensions of wellness: physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual, career, social and environmental (i.e. personal health) as part of the liberal arts educational foundation. Programs in the Health and Human Performance Department work to serve all students in a caring educational environment toward liberal arts studies in physical education and health and/or pre professional studies as physical education/health teachers or non-teaching allied health professionals.

 

Goals Statement

The goal of the University of Wisconsin-Superior Health and Human Performance Department is to:

·      foster the intellectual growth of all students concerning wellness for life as a core of their liberal arts experience.

 

·     develop critical thinking skills, positive attitudes and personal responsibility in all students toward leading productive and healthy lifestyles.

 

·     graduate certified physical education/health teachers who are engaged in their professional endeavors, able to impart knowledge and skills to diverse populations in a variety of educational settings.

 

·     graduate allied health professionals who make a positive contribution to society

 

·      achieve accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs [CAAHEP] for the undergraduate curriculum in exercise science.

 

The University of Wisconsin-Superior Health and Human Performance programs hope to develop these attributes in all students as part of the liberal arts mission of the university by providing a well-rounded, dynamic experience in the wellness course.

 

Philosophy Statement

“The mind cannot live without the body.” 

“The body cannot live without the mind.”

Morpheus, “The Matrix,” 1999.   

 

The Health and Human Performance Department believes in the education of the total person, body, soul and spirit in that:

 

·         developing a knowledge base and critical thinking skills concerning responsibility for individual wellness is critical for all human beings.

 

·         all students should be given the opportunity to develop a positive attitude toward healthy behaviors for a lifetime.

 

·         learning takes place best when there is an emotional attachment, therefore students need to be engaged in the curriculum.

 

·         attitudes are caught not taught; teachers must be excited about their courses and the environment in which they teach.

 

·         as we learn to move, we move to learn, and we all have the responsibility to become aware of and learn to respect diversity among people.

 

·         the teaching-learning process is a two-way street; the student-teacher relationship should revolve around good, honest communication, valued learning experiences and assessments, and should bring about expected outcomes for both parties.

 

We strongly recommend all majors retain textbooks, course notes and major papers in each of the major courses. These materials will be important when they take other courses in your major and/or minor.

 

All students with majors or minors in Physical Education and Health must earn a grade of C- or better in all required courses in the major and/or minor.

 

Students seeking teacher certification must meet the requirements detailed in the Elementary Education and Secondary Education sections of this catalog.

Liberal Education Requirement

To fulfill the Liberal Education Requirement all students must successfully complete HHP 102 Health and Wellness. Students with medical restrictions should contact the coordinator of HHP 102 labs before the first lab session. Physical Education majors and minors must earn a grade of C+ or better in HHP 102.

 

Prerequisites:   

Students should note that several Health and Human Performance courses at the 200, 300 and 400 levels have specific course prerequisites. These prerequisites are indicated in the Course Descriptions portion of this catalog.

 

Experiential Learning - Fieldwork - Internship

The faculty of the Health and Human Performance Department believe a well-designed and meaningful work experience which builds on the academic foundation provided by a college education can greatly enhance the total learning experience and facilitate the transition from college to the professional world. Academic credits awarded for Fieldwork, Experiential Learning, range from 1-12. Credits for Internship range from 10-20. Interested students should read the ”Internship Handbook” and contact the instructor for additional information.

 

Courses More than Seven Years Old at Time of Graduation

The Health and Human Performance Department retains the option to require that any courses in the major that are more than seven years old at the time of graduation be repeated.

 

Academic Integrity

Students are expected to maintain academic integrity in meeting requirements for an undergraduate degree. Evidence of academic misconduct may result in certain sanctions, such as failure in a course or dismissal from the program. Chapter 14 UW-Superior Student Disciplinary Procedures of the Wisconsin Administrative Code for the University of Wisconsin System outlines the procedures for identifying academic misconduct and the appropriate sanctions.

 

Immoral Conduct - Incompetency

A student may be denied admission to the certification program under Wisconsin Administrative Code for the Department of Public Instruction PI 3:045 dealing with Incompetency and Immoral Conduct. Recommendations for certification can also be denied under the same statute.

 

The following are statutory definitions: "Immoral Conduct" means conduct or behavior which is contrary to commonly accepted moral or ethical standards. "Incompetency" means a substantial prolonged pattern of inadequate performance of duties or the lack of ability, legal qualifications or fitness to discharge required duties, affecting the health, welfare, safety or education of pupils.

 

See Course Descriptions for information on required courses.
