Undergraduate Physical Education Teacher Education candidates are required to take courses in the following areas: skills & practice teaching physical activities and fitness, teaching methods, foundations of education, and anatomy & physiology classes that emphasize health and human movement. In the senior year, students complete comprehensive field experiences and in the final semester, must complete student teaching with experiences across grade levels. Community partnerships with local schools and other organizations support our students developing the knowledge and proficiencies needed to work with New York City's diverse student populations.

Graduates of our program make up a large percentage of New York City's P-12 physical education teachers.

Students must have a minimum overall grade point average of 2.5 to declare a major in Physical Education Teacher. Students must maintain a minimum overall grade point average of 2.75 to remain a major in the program. Physical Education Teacher majors must have a grade point average of 3.0 or greater in required Department of Secondary Education coursework to graduate.

Adolescence education (grades 7-12) and special subject programs are writing intensive.

This program qualifies students to apply for New York State initial certification in physical education for all grades (P-12).
