Students enrolled in the HESSE Department of the Helen DeVos College of Education should expect to be intellectually challenged, emotionally and mentally supported, and physically engaged as they complete a program of studies designed to meet their needs as they transition to employment as well as graduate studies. Areas of interest housed in HESSE include Exercise Science, Pre-Athletic Training, Wellness Teacher Education, Recreation, and Sports Management. HESSE also works with other departments across the university in meeting Tennessee’s initial teacher licensure requirements.
