Physical Education Minor Program Information


The Physical Education minor at East Tennessee State University is offered for students who are interested in physical education but who do not want to major in teacher certification in physical education. This minor is designed to help students acquire skills and knowledge to assist in preparation for entering the Master of Arts in Teaching program and for those who plan to work with children outside the school setting.

Flexibility in the Physical Education minor allows students to customize an 18-semester hour program in consultation with the program coordinator. The minor does not lead to teacher licensure.
