Program Overview

Schools in America need leaders, coaches, and teachers who display and promote Christian values, sportsmanship, and ethics. The Physical Education K-12 degree equips students to guide young people into lifelong habits of wellness. It includes general education courses and professional studies in child psychology, educational philosophy, and specialized teaching methodologies. The program also includes coursework designed to qualify students for eight different professional certifications from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), and the Association of Church Sports and Recreation Ministers (CSRM). Field experiences expose students to the full range of K-12 education in Tennessee, including public and private schools.
