With Teacher Certification

A class at Rudolf Fitness Center 

The Bachelor of Education in Kinesiology & Physical Education curriculum prepares students for Washington State Certification to teach health and fitness at the elementary or secondary levels in schools. This certification is also widely accepted by other states throughout the country. With a strong liberal arts core, courses from the Kinesiology & Physical Education program and course work in education from the Department of Teacher Education, students master skills for entry into the teaching profession in K-12 schools, and they oftentimes will coach a sport at their school. The major also prepares students to pursue graduate studies in physical education (pedagogy or administration).
