EC-12 Physical Education

The B.S in EC-12 Physical Education at UMHB has a longstanding history of preparing outstanding teachers and coaches. The goal of the major is to prepare students to become expert teachers and coaches in a field that can enhance the health and vitality of students through the promotion of lifelong physical activity. Majors in this degree will have the opportunity to choose from one of two concentrations: A) Physical Education Teacher Certification or B) Sports Coaching. Students who choose and complete the teacher certification program are eligible to teach physical education and coach in public and private schools, kindergarten through twelfth grade. Students who choose the sports coaching option will be able to pursue their passion for coaching and take advantage of other opportunities in the coaching field without a teaching certificate.

Both concentrations will share a common core of classes that will give students the expertise to excel as both a physical education teacher as well as a sports coach. Students will have the opportunity to actively participate in courses that provide “real-world” applications such as the ability to work outside of the classroom setting as a volunteer coach or as a student mentor. At the culmination of their degree, our graduates are poised to positively impact students by enabling them to develop skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary to pursue health and to be physically active for a lifetime.
