Required Coursework

The graduate program in physical education, requiring 33 credits, is designed for post-baccalaureate and in-service physical educators.  The emphasis in this curriculum is to provide answers to the questions “what I can learn about teaching and what decisions do I face as a professional educator?” Students will be assigned an adviser with whom they should consult on a regular basis. In fact, adviser approval is required on certain coursework.
