Physical Education

The Physical Education major prepares students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values to become effective professionals. Students are encouraged to engage in creative thinking and problem solving to help them become lifelong learners and reflective practitioners. Pre-professionals are provided theoretical education and are then frequently challenged to apply this knowledge in real world, professional settings with diverse groups of people.
