Physical Education Major (B.S.)


The Physical Education major is designed for students who anticipate a teaching career in education. This program is planned to meet Minnesota’s requirements for the Physical Education teaching license, grades K–12. The student must be accepted into the Teacher Education Department and meet all its requirements.

Program Requirements


I. Christian Studies - 30 Credits


II. General Education - 38 Credits


Total - 129-143 Credits


1 Select humanities electives from COM, ENG, ESL, FAR, HIS, HUM, LAN, MUS, PHI, or PRC.

2 Select social science electives from ANT, CSJ, ECO, ESL, GEO, HIS, POL, PSY, or SOC.

4 Fine arts courses include music, art, drama, and dance. COM 328  and COM 446  also qualify as fine arts electives. (Only three credits of music organizations and/or lessons can be counted toward humanities/fine arts requirements.)

* Some courses from the Christian Studies Core and Major Core can be used to fulfill requirements in the General Education Core. By doing that the number of credits needed for graduation would be toward the lower end of the range of total credits.

^ Requires a minimum passing grade of a “C”.

Note: Student teaching is eligible for a Christian Service unit.

This program is subject to change based on the Minnesota State Board of Teaching licensing revisions.
