Physical Education - Licensure Emphasis

The Physical Education - Licensure emphasis leads to a 530 Physical Education Professional Educator license from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. This licensure provides students with the flexibility to teach students at all levels in both elementary and/or secondary schools. Students who are interested in making themselves highly marketable may choose from two additional add-on Professional Educator licenses: 910 Health Professional Educator and 860 Adaptive Physical Education.
