Welcome to the home page for the Health, Physical Education, and Recreation (HPER) Department at Asbury University.

HPER strives to provide Asbury students with theoretical and practical applications of wellness, an understanding of the human body and how physical activity is an important pursuit for a healthy lifestyle.  The department is pleased to offer five academic majors representing a broad range of career service opportunities.  Those majors include Equine Management (Management and/or Facilitated Mental Health), Exercise Science (emphases in Human Performance and Health Professions), Health and Physical Education Dual Teacher Certification, Recreation (emphases in Adventure Leadership and Public Recreation), and Sport Management.
