About this course

The A.S. in Health, Physical Education and Recreation (HPER) is designed to outline the freshman and sophomore years of study for students who plan to teach physical fitness, activities, and other health–related subjects such as weight control in the community and commercial gyms, YMCA’s, community youth sport programs, and business fitness centers. The program, as annotated, will also prepare students to pursue teacher certification programs at universities. University programs in HPER vary widely and often have several options or concentrations available. While at Eastern, students should work closely with advisors and check carefully the course requirements at the universities to which they plan to transfer.
