Health and Human Performance at Olivet College
A degree in health and human performance from Olivet College opens doors to a number of professional certification opportunities.
National organizations such as the American College of Sports Medicine, the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and others require a bachelor’s degree as the first step toward becoming certified in positions such as Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Certified Personal Trainer, or Registered Clinical Exercise Psychologist.
No matter what you decide to do, our curriculum is representative of the industry’s top career choices.
The Olivet College Health and Human Performance (HHP) Department recently received a donation of physical education equipment from Nasco, a company dedicated to fulfilling classroom needs.
The donation is a result of a partnership struck between the college and Nasco by KayDee Perry, assistant professor of HHP at Olivet College, and a physical education consultant for Nasco.
The Olivet College-Nasco partnership allows students to dig into their field of interest. Local schools have begun reaching out to the program to perform teaching demos using the donated equipment, which gives Olivet College students hands-on experience.
