School of Health and Human Sciences
Advancing wellness, enhancing human experiences, and elevating quality of life is a mission that transcends borders and transforms lives. When students study tourism, event, and sport management in the School of Health & Human Sciences (SHHS), they prepare to enter a global industry and revenue-generating engine that drives economies, connects communities, and helps people thrive. The experiences gained while studying at IUPUI include immersion into international event planning, staging world-class sporting events, and studying abroad—all of which build an alumni base whose work impacts people everywhere.
Health sciences, physical and occupational therapy, physician assistant studies, nutrition & dietetics, and kinesiology students inspire others to live well through a variety of translational research, health delivery, and preventive care options. SHHS graduates in these areas lead healthcare facilities in their home communities, work with patients representing all walks of life, and empower people to manage their health through physical activity and wellness initiatives. In an increasing global community, where diverse populations travel for healthcare, relocate internationally for work, and are connected through technology and transportation, our graduates’ reach extends beyond Indiana and encourages healthier living for all.
Additionally, SHHS offers IUPUI’s military science program, the nation’s premier leadership development program. Cadets learn to empower others, rise to a higher purpose, and serve something bigger than themselves. Their life of adventure and global service begins at IUPUI and positions them to protect others, respond to disasters, and lead individuals, no matter their chosen profession or destination.
