Undergraduate Program: Physical Education
Physical Education, (PreK-8, 5-12)
Students seeking teacher licensure in physical education complete the Movement and Sport Studies major, related physical education teacher preparation courses, and an extensive practicum component. Students may also complete the Movement and Sport Studies major without seeking teacher licensure. Those students complete an approved minor to complement their movement studies coursework.
The Movement and Sport Studies major provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the scientific and social foundations of movement as well as its cultural forms of dance, sport, games, and exercise. Science is at the foundation of the major, with students taking courses in anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics of movement. A strong emphasis on the psychology and sociology of sports supports the major’s framework. The major offers students the opportunity to prepare for teacher licensure in physical education; entry-level positions in coaching; and for graduate study in Movement and Sport Studies, pedogogy, sport management, allied health fields and rehabilitation.
