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 in health, physical education, recreation and coaching. There are two physical education major programs: (1) a 54-unit Licensure major that includes coursework leading to a broadfield (K-12) Physical Education public school licensure, and (2) a 35-unit Health, Human Performance and Recreation major, requiring an approved minor, that leads to careers in health promotion, human performance, exercise science, recreation and leisure services.

ADAPTED PHYSICAL EDUCATION CERTIFICATE provides a 15-unit 860 certificate leading to an Adapted Physical Education public school license.
