EXPERIENCED RESEARCHERS, EXCELLENT EQUIPMENT — Professor Mark Sloninger, who recently served as president of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine, has researched responses of
older adults and heart failure patients to exercise.
Whether you are a recent grad looking to become a health and physical education teacher, or a current educator who wants to broaden your knowledge base in the field of physical education, the M.Ed. in Health and Physical Education at IUP is perfect for you.
Our curriculum is structured specifically to qualify you as a certified health or physical educator. Classes are designed to inform you about contemporary trends in teacher education, including the incorporation of technology into the classroom. Also, our hybrid option means you only have to be on campus during the summer, taking online classes in Fall and Spring while still completing your degree (including student teaching) in as little as 18 months.
Our program is designed to serve the need of a variety of populations:
Thanks to our hybrid option, you can take classes from the comfort of your own home during spring and fall, only visiting campus during summer break. At the same time, all of our classes include on-campus options that cater to full-time students.
All Spring and Fall classes can be completed online as part of our hybrid option. Summer classes are on-campus only. You may also choose our dual enrollment option, completing two master's degrees (such as Health and Physical Education, along with Sports Management).
Students certified K-12 in another content area must complete a 3-credit internship in a school-based setting
The content and field experiences included in the MEd in Health and Physical Education program are based on the national standards of the American Association for Health Education and the National Association for Sport and Physical Education.
