The Department of Physical Education trains students to excel in team and individual athletics, develop lifetime fitness and mental wellness habits, and practice lifesaving techniques such as CPR and first aid.
Physical education courses and varsity sports meet the general education requirement. They may be taken more than once for additional credit in subsequent semesters. A maximum of one credit per varsity sport is permitted each academic year.
Physical Education courses are offered in partnership with Lifetime Fitness located on Avon Road, east of the college. Courses offered with Lifetime may include Rock Climbing 1 and 2, Cycling 50, and Swimming and Water Safety.
Graduates with backgrounds in Physical Education may become elementary or secondary school teachers and coaches, physical therapists, athletic trainers, aerobics instructors, personal trainers, sports managers, and recreation directors.
