Associate Professor Meyer
Assistant Professor of Practice Seier
A student majoring in physical education chooses one emphasis from the following: fitness management, exercise science, or teacher education.
A physical education major prepares the student for such professional experiences as managing fitness settings, personal fitness training, teaching physical education, athletic training, and post-graduate, professional study. The physical education teacher must pursue an additional teaching major. The fitness manager will have the practical experience and coursework to facilitate success with the certifying examination of the National Strength and Coaching Association. The exercise scientist completes many of the requirements for acceptance into post-graduate, pre-professional allied health settings, to include settings which specialize in athletic training.
