The Department offers courses for students who wish to pursue a career in physical education. They are required to complete a minimum of eight activity courses (PED 140 - PED 187) as well as PED 190(Introduction to Physical Education), and PED 292 (Safety and First Aid). These courses are designed to develop attitudes, appreciation, personal skills, and applied techniques in all types of activities included in the broad physical education program. The Department offers an A.S. Degree in Health Studies. Students who wish to pursue careers in school or community health are required to take PED 291(Personal Health for Physical Education and Health Majors), HED 293(Community Health), and other courses by advisement. It is strongly recommended that interested students make an appointment with the health education advisor to ensure proper course selection.
