The student seeking a Physical Education minor is required to pass a proficiency test in swimming. The test is given during the final exam week of each semester. Courses include: Concepts of Biology, Introduction to Physical Education, First Aid and CPR, Physical Education in the Elementary Grades, Instruction and Organization of Individual/Dual Activities , Instruction and Organization of Team Activities, Adapted Physical Education, Methods, Curriculum, & Assessment of Health & Physical Education, Practical Application of Methodology in the Health & Physical Education Classroom and Senior Portfolio.

This minor alone does not completely fulfill the requirements for a university degree. The student must also complete a major and other requirements. If this minor is of particular interest, you may want to pursue the major in Physical Education.
