Dr. Mike Ramsey, Department Chair

The Department of Sport, Exercise, Recreation, and Kinesiology offers two different baccalaureate degree programs: B.S. in Physical Education with concentrations in Exercise Science and K-12 Teacher Education as well as a B.S. in Sport and Leisure Management with concentrations in Sport Management and Park and Recreation Management.

The K-12 Teaching concentration prepares students for teacher licensure in physical education in the state of Tennessee. When students satisfy the requirements for teacher licensure, they will be licensed to teach physical education in grades Kindergarten through 12. The program of study provides extensive training in elementary and secondary pedagogy and supports the mission of the Clemmer College-Educating Leaders in the 21st Century. Teacher candidates are trained to assume leadership roles in the classroom, school, and community, while developing skills and knowledge in professional content and pedagogy with a special emphasis on technology, multicultural, and inclusion education. Physical Education specialists develop skills in reflective thinking and decision-making as they grow personally into caring lifelong learners. Students must be admitted to Teacher Education prior to enrolling in PEXS 3850 , PEXS 4007 , PEXS 4060 , PEXS 4700 , PEXS 4717 , EDFN 3301 , MEDA 3570 , and CUAI 4580 .
