Physical Education and Sport

The Physical Education and Sport Concentration prepares students for Masters programs in teaching. Our curriculum focuses on science based approaches, practical applications of movement analysis, and techniques for teaching motor development across the lifespan and in special populations. When the PES concentration is combined with the Masters of Arts in Teaching, students are well prepared to enter the teaching work force.
