Advanced/Professional Online Master’s in Physical Education
The online physical education program at Canisius is designed for physical education professionals who already possess initial teaching certification in physical education. The program is ideal for teachers and coaches with demanding schedules who need to balance work, family and continuing their education.
The online physical education degree is not a repeat of undergraduate physical education, which tends to provide students with content knowledge in physical education. The courses in this program assume prior physical education background and students apply the material through scientific and practical ways to the course material. Students will research cutting edge topics in teaching physical education and apply them to their classroom teaching. The faculty teaching the online physical education courses also teach or have taught undergraduate physical education and are careful not to repeat information from undergraduate learning and extend the courses to the next level of learning.
