The purpose of the B.S.Ed. in Health and Physical Education degree is to prepare students to serve as health and physical education teachers in PreK-12 schools, as well as to serve as educators and leaders in schools and community-based settings. The program will focus on providing students with the knowledge and experiences they need to successfully implement national and state health and physical education standards.
Students will complete course work enabling them to be successful in a variety of learning environments. Graduates will be prepared to work in public and private elementary, middle and high schools across Virginia, with particular focus in urban and high-need areas. The health and physical education program consists of rigorous course work and field experiences that will enable graduates to be leaders in the profession.
Successful completion of the program will result in licensure for health and physical education (PK-12).
Graduates typically work in public or private school systems, child care centers, and youth service organizations. Teaching in public schools requires licensure. Be sure to explore the certification requirements in the state you want to teach in as they can differ across states. Graduates can also find work with programs such as Richmond Teacher Residency, Americorps, America Reads or The Literacy Lab.
