The health and physical education degree gives you the perfect way to combine your love of sports and physical activity with the joy of serving others as a PreK-12 teacher. Today’s P.E. teachers do much more than just overseeing traditional gym classes. They help students understand and maintain a healthy lifestyle through proper nutrition, mindfulness, and stress management. If you feel called to lead others and help them live their best lives, Bluefield University prepares you for a career in teaching with our Christ-centered education.
Be a P.E. Teacher
Individual attention sets our health and physical education program apart from other P.E. programs. Limited class sizes and hands-on learning, including a full semester of student teaching in addition to classroom observations that are incorporated into most education courses, mean you won’t just read about teaching. You’ll see it firsthand before you put your ideas into practice. Through your coursework, you’ll receive personalized feedback for constant improvement. That’s why BU graduates are highly sought after in Virginia schools.
