A minor in Physical Education is part of the preparation to earn licensure to teach Physical Education in both Primary and Secondary schools. Graduates with a minor in Physical Education will develop coaching skills that can be applies at numerous levels such as youth sports programs, middle or high school, and college athletic programs.
All courses must be passed with a “C-” (1.7) or better to be counted in the minor.
Physical Education Minor Curriculum (37-38 Credits)
This program typically leads to licensure/certification and was designed to meet such qualifications for the state of Utah. Students who are or may be planning to pursue licensure/certification in any other U.S. state or territory may need to meet additional education requirements. This is not a reflection of SUU’s accreditation or quality, as each state and territory regulates their own education requirements for occupational licensure.
Students enrolled in a teacher preparation program may potentially be able to use a Utah educator license to obtain licensure through reciprocity. Additional information may be found through the Department of Teacher Education’s reciprocity table.
An overview of all of SUU’s programs that lead to licensure/certification and the programs’ current determination statuses may be found at www.suu.edu/provost/licensure.html.
