Physical Education Courses & Curriculum
The BS in Physical Education - Teaching delivers a blend of theoretical and practical learning combined with professional growth and development opportunities to prepare you for a successful teaching career in physical education. Minors in coaching, wellness or strength and conditioning, along with the Developmental Adapted Physical Education (DAPE) certificate, will equip you with even broader skills and increased knowledge to enhance your employability.
The BA in Physical Education provides the same blend of theoretical and practical learning, but is not adequate preparation to teach in schools. The BA prepares you to work in health clubs, country clubs, hospitals, universities, yoga and Pilates studios, resorts or clients' homes.
A DAPE Certificate and a minor in coaching or wellness are an excellent complement to round out an educator’s portfolio. These additional skill sets provide you a competitive advantage when seeking a teaching position.
The minors in strength and conditioning or wellness will give you additional knowledge to excel as a personal or group fitness instructor.
