College of Health, Education and Human Development

Prospective Undergraduate Students

The Clemson University College of Health, Education, and Human Development Healthcare and public health are two of the hottest career fields in America today. The aging and retiring of the largest population segment in the country, known as baby boomers, has left the healthcare industry racing to find enough employees to fill the void. Advances in medical technology and treatment are causing people to live longer as well, which keeps both fields constantly in search of highly educated students.

Nurses are the backbone of the medical profession. Those in public health are the educators who teach other how to live stronger, healthier, and happier lives. So what's it like to earn a nursing degree from Clemson? See for yourself.  Or check out what it's like to major in Public Health Sciences?  While you're at it, check out Students Speak: Nursing and Students Speak: Public Health Sciences.

Like the field of healthcare, the field of teaching offers yet another way to influence the lives of so many. Teachers change the world. Teachers make a difference in the lives of students and they inspire a younger generation to do great things. It's a profession that can lead you to a classroom or the corporate environment. Like nursing, educators are always in demand. See what some of our students say about why they chose teaching or visit the School of Education website to find more details.

Nearly one third of your life is spent playing. Recreational activies are just as necessary as sleeping or eating. In the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management, students study fun. They learn how to manage recreational activities, take an active role in the environment, and preform scientific studies on tourism and the effects on a local, regional, and national economy.  This is only a portion of the skill sets you will learn in this department. If you want to find out more, listen to what some of our students have to say or visit the PRTM website.
