Majoring in Physical Education and Health Education involves the study of pedagogy, or the method and practice of teaching. You’ll develop the skills and insights to become an effective physical education (K-12) or health (5-12) teacher and lifelong learner. You’ll gain knowledge and skills that are important for any teaching career as you take 57 to 61 credit hours towards a Bachelor of Arts degree, and the physical education and health curriculum meets the Minnesota Department of Education requirements for a teaching credential (passage of standardized examinations of content and pedagogy are also required).

Students who complete this major are eligible to apply to the Minnesota Department of Education for a teaching credential for grades 5 through 12 health. Students have an opportunity to blend theory and practice through a series of content courses, methods courses, field experiences, and clinical practice. Passage of standardized examinations of content and pedagogy are also required.
