Complete all Institutional Graduation Requirements (Including University Writing Requirement, Diversity Requirement, General Education Requirement, etc.) as provided at http://www.eou.edu/registrar.

Program Requirements:

  • Health and Human Performance Major w/Exercise Science Concentration is a minimum 67 graded credit hour degree. A grade of “C-” or better is required for each course counting towards the major, but a cumulative GPA of at least a 2.00 is required for completion of the major. 
  • Achieve a standard of health related fitness by achieving the 65th percentile on a physical ability test. This must be completed as part of a designated course (CH 298, EXS 323), or in some other faculty approved format. 
  • Competency (certification) in First Aid and CPR.

The Health and Human Performance Major w/Exercise Concentration is available on-campus and online. For the BIOL 231-233 series; on-campus students take BIOL 231/231L, 232/232L & 233/233L, online students take BIOL 231, 232 & 233 (not the BIOL 231L, 232L or 233L labs) as the lab is embedded into the online 231-233 courses.
