Department of Health, Physical Education and Movement Science
Good health and fitness are essential to a child's well-being. Students in the Department of Health, Physical Education and Movement Science prepare for careers as health and physical education teachers who promote wellness, fitness, motor development and competence, skill proficiency and remediation in children and adults. The Department offers three TEAC-accredited undergraduate degree options: a B.S. in Health Education, a B.S. in Physical Education, and a dual B.S. in Health and Physical Education. All degrees lead to New York State Initial Teaching Certification to teach kindergarten through grade 12. The rigorous academic programs are supplemented with extensive field experience that creatively links theory and practice.
