If you wish to become a health and physical education teacher and have a positive impact on our youth’s health and fitness, you have found the right major. Here, we understand the importance of fitness participation at a young age, and we want to prepare you to not only teach, but encourage young students to stay active. Our Health and Physical Education Certificate program incorporates hands-on learning and diverse field experiences in elementary, middle, and secondary school settings to develop your skills and build a strong pedagogical foundation. In addition to gaining hands-on experience, you’ll also gain knowledge of technologies such as heart rate monitors, pedometers, LiveText, and various forms of software applicable to public school health and physical education instruction. Upon graduation, you will have a sound basis of theory, field experience, and be prepared to guide students toward a life full of health and well-being.
