The Department of Physical Education and Human Performance offers undergraduate and graduate programs. For undergraduates seeking to become teachers, we offer two programs—one in Physical Education and the other in Dance Education. Students who successfully complete these programs are eligible for teacher certification by the State of Connecticut.
We also offer undergraduate programs in Exercise Science and Athletic Training. The Exercise Science program prepares students for employment in the fitness industry, corporate wellness, strength and conditioning. It is also a great preparation for entry into a graduate program or professional health care degree program. The Athletic Training program prepares students to become professional athletic trainers (ATC) or to pursue advanced graduate work in allied health professions.
At the graduate level, there are two master’s-level programs in Physical Education, one specializing in Exercise Science and the other with a Specialization in Teaching Physical Education for already certified teachers.
