General Studies in Health, Human Performance, and Recreation

The Health, Human Performance & Recreation program is built for students preparing for sport and health-related careers. The General Studies in HHPR major is designed for students unsure of which area they are most interested in pursuing. A popular feature of this program is that the general electives may also be used to meet entrance requirements for a professional school of the students' choice. This is especially helpful in those instances where Baylor University does not have a pre-professional degree program in the field a student is interested in. Course available include:

  • Nutrition
  • Stress Management
  • Dying and Death
  • Outdoor Adventure Activities
  • Research Methods in Health Education

The wide variety of subject matter within the General Studies major provides students the opportunity to work in career areas of health, fitness, recreation or sports. Students also often pursue graduate school after completing the degree.

The School of Education offers several study abroad programs; however, a unique study abroad experience is available for health-related degrees every summer. Baylor in Brazil is a 30 day program in which a group of students travel to several places working with local programs to promote health while taking classes.

Additional international experiences are available to candidates in the School of Education in order to assist them in the understanding of and participation in a global society. The programs are offered in England, Australia, Costa Rica and Hong Kong, and vary from four weeks to a full year, depending on the preference and needs of the students.
