Master of Science, Physical Education with Specialization in Teaching Physical Education
(For Certified Teachers)

 

Program Rationale:
The graduates of the M.S. in Physical Education with a specialization in Teaching Physical Education expect to increase the competency and knowledge of certified teachers in health and physical education. An undergraduate program in physical education from an accredited institution of higher education and teaching certification is preferred for admission to the master's degree program. This undergraduate program should be the equivalent of the undergraduate program in physical education at CCSU.  
 

Program Learning Outcomes:
Graduate Students will:
• Develop content knowledge in pedagogy and exercise science as it relates to health and physical education professionals

• Read and interpret research and apply significant findings as it relates to health and physical education professions.

 

Admissions Requirements:
Applicants must hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution of higher education. Applicants must also have a minimum undergraduate GPA of 2.70 on a 4.00 point scale (where A is 4.00), or its equivalent, and good standing (3.00 GPA) in all post-baccalaureate course work.

The admissions application, application fee, and official transcripts from each college and university attended (except Central Connecticut State University) must be submitted to the Graduate Recruitment and Admissions Office.
