Health and physical education

The health and physical education concentration of the Master of Teaching program will be closed upon completion of the teach out plan for students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Health, Physical Education and Exercise Science general health and physical education concentration, which will suspend admissions effective spring 2014.

The Master of Teaching program with a concentration in health and physical education provides advanced course work in the application of health and movement science principles to health and physical education pedagogy.
