What will I learn?

The physical education concentration is designed with two options: the first option, Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE), prepares students for a teaching career in physical education. The student who completes the program in physical education will have the breadth and depth of knowledge regarding developmentally appropriate physical education. The PETE option provides students with the coursework for both subject matter content and pedagogy for teaching physical education at the K-12 level. Students who choose this option will then have the opportunity to attain their Single Subject Physical Education California Teaching Credential, an additional two semester program through the Department of Teacher Education at Sacramento State.

The second option, Sport Studies, prepares students for a career in a variety of movement settings, other than the traditional physical education teaching career. These movement settings include club and high school athletics, intercollegiate athletics, and professional athletics, in the fields of coaching, conditioning, and administration. The Sport Studies option does not meet the standards for subject matter preparation and the Sport Studies student would need to complete additional coursework to qualify for admission to pursue the Physical Education Teaching Credential at Sacramento State and other institutions.

The student who completes the PETE or Sport Studies option will understand the aesthetics of movement and human performance and the meaningfulness of physical activity in lifelong learning. Additionally, the student will gain knowledge of the historical and philosophical factors that relate to performance, fitness and wellness.
