Physical Education Program

Completion of the Physical Education Program leads to a Bachelor of Science in Education and prepares students for licensure to teach physical education to students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12. Within this major, students will earn licensures in Health, Adapted Physical Education, and Coaching.

Students who wish to pursue physical education must apply and be admitted to the Professional Education Program.  Once accepted, students will proceed through the Physical Education Program.
