Physical Education Sports Studies
The physical education major may wish to pursue a career other than teaching. Several options are available to prepare students for professional careers or graduate training. Students may obtain a bachelor of science degree in physical education sport studies, a bachelor of science degree in physical education sport studies with a minor in sport psychology, a bachelor of science degree in physical education sport studies witha concentration in sport administration, or a bachelor of science degree in sport studies with a minor in strength and conditioning. In each program the candidate must combine the elected minor or concentration with the required major courses. The Physical Education Sport Studies degree does not lead to teacher certification.
Physical Education Sport Studies students who wish to expand their educational opportunities may decide to declare a minor outside the department. The decision may be based on career goals or planned graduate studies. Minors generally range from six to eight required courses. A listing of the minors can be found under the Academic Curricula section of the catalog. Some majors and minors can be completed within the minimum 120 credit hour degree requirement. But in some cases additional course work may be required.
