Physical Education (BSE)

Exercise young minds

Exercising and learning go hand in hand. Students who are active throughout the school day have shown significant improvements in attendance, behavior, and academic performance. They also gain confidence that can boost self-esteem. That’s where you come in.

With our Physical Education program, you will motivate, encourage, and inspire students to achieve their fullest fitness potential. As a role model, you will help your future students learn lifelong skills such as leadership, sportsmanship, collaboration, patience, and cooperation. 

Advanced technologies are used in sports and in schools. We provide hands-on experience in our Human Performance lab, and give you access to the following technologies:

  • Dartfish Motion Analysis
  • FitLights
  • FitWall
  • Heart Rate Monitors
  • NeuroTracker
  • Optogait Gait Analysis
  • Variety of Fitness and PE related apps

Get your head in the game

Picture this. Your team is in the state championship and you’re coaching on the sidelines. With 20 seconds left in the game, your quarterback scores the game-winning touchdown. The crowd goes wild!

If you can picture that, picture yourself getting a coaching endorsement, which will enable you to coach students in a sport you love.

Our program also incorporates a K-12 Technology Endorsement into the curriculum. You’ll be able to teach computer classes in addition to physical education and coaching.
