The college is no longer accepting majors in Physical Education Teacher Education program as of Fall 2021. We strongly encourage anyone considering pursuing physical education as a career to speak with an advisor as soon as possible about your options.
You can become a physical education teacher by majoring in Youth and Community Studies and taking 12 hours of Kinesiology courses. Be sure to talk to your advisor as he or she can help you determine which courses will work best for you as you complete the steps to becoming a teacher.
All students also must apply to and participate in the Professional Development Sequence (PDS), typically a three-semester teacher preparation program, through which you will experience up to 800 hours in classrooms through fieldwork, observations, and student teaching.
