College of Education and Human Service Professions
  • Program Type: Baccalaureate
  • Requirements for this program are current for Fall 2019
  • Required credits to graduate with this degree: 122 to 134
  • Required credits within the major: 104 to 116
  • Degree: Bachelor of Applied Science
The bachelor of applied science (B.A.Sc.) in physical education is for students preparing for teacher licensure in physical education (K-12). The major aligns to the Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB) standards for Physical Education in grades K-12 in Minnesota. The program is taught using the Learner-Sensitive Educator Model, supporting preferences of reflection, social justice, collaboration, empowerment, and technology. Students are required to obtain personal liability insurance to protect them while they are working in public school situations. Proof of insurance also is required when enrolled in Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) 4100, 4125, 4200, 4225, 4250, and student teaching. This usually is obtained most economically by student membership in the Minnesota Education Association. Applications are available in the department office. The physical education program develops subject matter expertise of prospective teachers through a sequential set of courses. PETE courses are open only to majors, allowing faculty to focus on the specific needs and learning objectives of the physical education major. The physical education program also instills an appropriate set of professional dispositions (attitudes and behaviors) that are predictors of success in educational settings. Students who fail to exhibit appropriate dispositions may be removed from the program.
