Physical Education (BSE)

Physical Education

Exercise young minds

Exercising and learning go hand in hand. Students who are active throughout the school day have shown significant improvements in attendance, behavior, and academic performance. They’ll also gain confidence that can boost their self-esteem. That’s where you come in.

With our Physical Education program, you can motivate, encourage, and inspire students to achieve their fullest fitness potential.  As the role model, you’ll educate them on lifelong skills such as leadership, sportsmanship, and collaboration. Other skills they’ll inherit include: communication, patience, and cooperation. 

As technologies advance, they’re being utilized in schools and sports.  We provide hands-on experience in our Human Performance lab, and give you access to the following technologies:

  • Dartfish Motion Analysis
  • FitLights
  • FitWall
  • Heart Rate Monitors
  • NeuroTracker
  • Optogait Gait Analysis
  • Pedometers
  • Variety of Fitness and PE related apps

Get your head in the game

Picture this. Your team is in the state championship and you’re coaching on the sidelines. With 20 seconds left in the game, your quarterback scores the game winning touchdown. The crowd goes wild!

If you can picture that, picture yourself getting a coaching endorsement, which will enable you to coach students in a sport you love. Our coaching endorsements include: Coaching: Elementary, Middle School, Assistant Varsity Endorsement and Coaching: Varsity/Head Coach Endorsement.  

Our program incorporates a K-12 Technology Endorsement into the curriculum. You’ll be able to teach computer classes in addition to physical education and coaching.

Curriculum at the forefront

You’ll be prepared to teach P.E. as well as health and social science courses from kindergarten through high school. You’ll adapt lesson plans for students of different ages and for students with disabilities. Your expertise will also enable you to monitor your students and alternate activities to keep them engaged and interested.
