The Physical Education minor is intended for non-Physical Education majors. It is well suited for College of Community Innovation and Education, School of Teacher Education students majoring in another secondary/K-12 content area, Elementary Education or Early Childhood Education. It is also intended to provide for university students outside the School of Teacher Education (such as students enrolled in Kinesiology, Biology, or Athletic Training) a limited but substantial experience in the field of professional education. This minor is not available to students in pending status in a School of Teacher Education major. Students who successfully complete this minor can expect to increase their marketability in careers that include educational components such as instructing, training, and lecturing as well as community-based physical education and recreation applications. This minor is designed to promote student success in instructional settings, particularly in the K-12 school setting, but does not directly qualify students for teacher certification or admission into the College of Community Innovation and Education.
