Major in Physical Education
A major in the field of physical education provides a broad foundation for a teaching career in public schools.
As a physical education major, you will have contact with students early in the curriculum—long before the official student-teaching sequence begins. As part of your studies, you might organize a team-building activity at an elementary school or participate in Everybody Can Day (a service-learning event that shows schoolchildren the challenges faced by those who are physically challenged) or International Games Day.
