Physical Education - Undergraduate

Teacher Preparation for Elementary, Middle,

and Secondary Schools

Students may pursue a two-year program of study in physical education to qualify for Florida certification for teaching grades Kindergarten through 12th.

The two-year programs are offered beginning in the junior year and includes mandatory attendance during the summer session between the junior and senior years. Students can enter during Fall Semester of each year only. Students proceed through the program in cohorts and are required to complete all the required courses each semester with a grade of "C-" or better in order to progress to the next semester. Students who do not complete the requirements will be dismissed from the program and may re-apply for the next cohort.

In addition to applying to the University, all students must apply directly to the Department and meet the admission criteria for the College of Education.

NOTE: Students intending to be employed in public School settings should be aware of the College policy on arrests and convictions.
