B.S. in Physical Education and Sport

The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Physical Education and Sport provides greater emphasis on sport science subject matter/content and less on pedagogy. Students who select this degree program generally apply their knowledge in the areas of exercise science, community and corporate fitness, cardiac rehabilitation, sports medicine, sport industry management, and/or executive fitness programming. The physical education and sport degree program is a non-teacher certification program. Students pursuing this degree may be required to purchase a personal liability insurance policy and obtain certain clearances before beginning the preprofessional experience, the internship, or any other clinical experience on or off campus. 

Four specialty programs of study have been developed for the degree program in Physical Education and Sport. These programs, in addition to the Nutrition minor within the Physical Education and Sport program, and a business minor in conjunction with the Sport Administration program, provide students with an innovative, relevant, and challenging curriculum and at the same time encourage the promotion of interdisciplinary work. Course content is focused toward specific professions, as well as toward different national credentialing possibilities. Student internships and preprofessional experiences can be more appropriately focused to enhance opportunities for postgraduate employment. Furthermore, these programs provide emphasis in specific subject content areas and teach skills necessary for students to assume leadership roles in careers related to the health fitness industry as well as the sport science industry.
