Program Overview

The Physical Education major may be used as the basis for careers in teaching, coaching, athletic training, exercise science/fitness, athletic and sports management.

Students intending to earn a Bachelor's degree in physical education/kinesiology should consult early with counselors and current catalogs of the college/university to which they plan to transfer. Specific requirements vary; however institutions usually require that students complete a core of basic sciences and physical education courses as well as general education requirements prior to transfer.
