Health & Physical Education
HEALTH AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION GRADES K-12
Our program is a double major leading to a BS degree. Our courses take you beyond theory and into the gym and classroom. From the start, you engage in active learning. Classes are filled with peer teaching opportunities and hands-on assignments. Your preparation includes learning teaching theories and scientific principles of exercise and health. Graduates are prepared to:
- Teach fundamental motor skills in multiple sports and activities
- Promote a physically active lifestyle
- Teach a variety of important health topics including nutrition, mental health and human sexuality
After you complete the 45 credit hours, you officially apply to the Health & Physical Education Teacher Education Program. You conclude with a full semester of student teaching. You get experience in both elementary and secondary school (middle or high school), qualifying you to teach any age from K-12.
