GENERAL EDUCATION requirements include a personal health and fitness course for all University students. Additional opportunities exist for the study of health-related physical fitness and/or participation in team, individual, and high risk adventure sports as leisure-time activities at a beginning or intermediate level. Courses offered are available to all students and promote a knowledge of sports and activities which stress the importance of the benefits derived from regular participation in physical activity.
 
 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION MAJOR programs provide opportunities supporting both licensure to teach in the public schools, and preparation for careers outside the public schools in health, physical education, recreation and coaching. There are three physical education major programs: (1) a 54-unit major and includes course work leading to a broadfield (K-12) public school licensure, (2) a 35-unit major, requiring a minor leading to an elementary (K-9) public school license, and (3) a 35-unit non-licensure major, also requiring a minor, leading to careers outside the public schools in the area of Health Promotion, Human Performance and Recreation.
 
 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION FOR SPECIAL STUDENT LICENSURE provides a 15-unit 860 certification in adapted physical education.
