Welcome to the Department of Health, Leisure and
Exercise Science
The mission of the Department of Health, Leisure, and Exercise Science (HLES) is to deliver student-centered education that is
accentuated by quality teaching, scholarly activity, and service. Although united by a common mission, each of the five interrelated
academic units (Athletic Training, Exercise Science, Health Promotion, Physical Education, and Recreation Management) has its own
distinct body of knowledge to achieve the following goals:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
provide undergraduate degrees in each discipline;
provide graduate degrees in selected disciplines;
provide basic instruction/wellness literacy and discipline-specific courses which support attainment of knowledge and skills that
enable effective active lifestyle choices;
provide professional service to undergraduate students, the University community, allied groups, organizations and
practitioners and
conduct theoretical and applied research that contributes to the body of knowledge in each discipline.
The Department of Health, Leisure and Exercise Science is made up of five separate programs: Athletic Training, Exercise Science, Health
Promotion, Physical Education Teacher Education, and Recreation Management. All of the programs share a commitment in the
accomplishment of our departmental mission which is to enhance the human condition through the development of physical, mental,
social and spiritual health.
The Department of HLES is one of the largest academic units at Appalachian State University with more than forty faculty members, over
one thousand undergraduate majors, and thirty graduate students. All of the HLES faculty members are involved in individual or
collaborative research efforts that contribute to the body of knowledge in each of the five respective disciplines. This activity also allows
the faculty to remain on the cutting edge of their specialty areas and contributes to their effectiveness in the classroom.
Although we are a large department, HLES has a reputation for outstanding academic advising and being student centered. Opportunities
for student involvement in research and community-based service learning activities abound. Experiential education opportunities are
also plentiful. Some of these are class related, allowing students to engage in research or service activities in the High Country region.
Other experiential learning occurs in our numerous laboratories, through clinical supervision, or in full time internships. The department
has an impressive record of placing students in nationwide and international internship positions, preparing them for exciting careers in
the health, leisure, and fitness industries. We also have an expanding international program which allows students to travel abroad on
study tours or study abroad for a semester or a year.
Through all of this, the faculty maintains a dedication to being effective teachers. They are actively involved in faculty development
pursuits which help them achieve excellence in their teaching responsibilities. The department employs state of the art teaching
evaluation systems that provide timely student feedback to faculty members and ultimately lead to improved teaching performance.
We hope you enjoy learning more about the Department of HLES as you browse through our home page. For further information or to

Exercise Science
The Exercise Science degree has an interdisciplinary commitment from scientists and educators to provide
students with an understanding of exercise and sports performance. Majors in exercise science can choose
concentrations in Pre-Professional, Strength & Conditioning or Clinical Exercise Physiology.
Pre-Professional Concentration
This course of study provides the science-related foundation required for successful admission to professional
schools for students interested in becoming Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Chiropractors,
Physicians and Physician's Assistants.
Strength and Conditioning Concentration
Students interested in attending graduate school to study exercise science, pursuing a career as a conditioning
coach, or working in fitness/wellness programs (personal training, etc.) may want to consider this academic course
of study. Strength and Conditioning courses prepare students to work in applied and academic settings by
focusing on the science behind exercise and sport performance.
Clinical Exercise Physiology Concentration
This concentration provides the academic preparation for students interested in working in a clinical setting with a
variety of populations which include obese, cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic, and pediatric. Classes designed
to teach students about specific pathophysiologies and the accompanying exercise recommendations along with a
substantial internship experience will prepare students for graduate study or immediate entry into the work force.
This academic course of study is designed to prepare students for successful completion of the American College
of Sports Medicine's Clinical Exercise Specialist certification.
Minor in Exercise Science
A minor in Exercise Science consists of 19 semester hours. The minor is designed individually according to the
student’s interests and designated major, and in consultation with the advisor, area director, and departmental
chair.
