This program provides students the opportunity to study the foundations of physical activity in the scope of a fitness professional. This program is designed for students who are not interested in teaching in the K-12 system but would prefer to find roles in fitness centers or pursue graduate courses in exercise science or sport studies. The program also offers a concentration in Strength and Conditioning. Students may also earn minors in Coaching and Physical Education.
The Physical Education major prepares students for various career opportunities: coaching, collegiate/professional sports, health fields, and fitness clubs. Students in any of the physical education disciplines are encouraged to continue their education by seeking a graduate degree.
