Physical Education & Sport Science Department

The Physical Education & Sport Science (PESS) Department prepares students to become physical education teachers and coaches. 

Through both traditional and experiential methods, faculty give students a well-rounded education to ensure they succeed in their post-graduate careers.

We offer a variety of academic programs, from undergraduate majors and minors to graduate licensures and certificates.

With a degree in PESS, you can pursue careers in Physical Education (Teaching), coaching, sport management, and more.
