Our Physical Education Program is not only for the student who wants to become a Physical Education teacher working with K-12 students, it is also for those interested in non-teaching careers in fitness, wellness and even recreation. We provide educational opportunities for our students in and out of the classroom and also serve as a resource for those now in teaching or other professional fields. We have very hands-on classes and an active P.E. Majors club as well!

Students will know how human movement is generated and how to effect change in human movement. Students will know/understand how sociological and psychological factors influence human movement. Students will be prepared to educate people of all ages and abilities of the importance of lifelong fitness and wellness.

Students, in either teaching or supervisory roles, will be able to evaluate and give appropriate feedback on physical performance, i.e., sport skill, fitness plans, fitness rehabilitation protocols.

Students will be prepared for admission to graduate study in exercise science, pedagogy, sociology and psychology of sport.
