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 oversee 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 College prepares you for a career in teaching with our Christ-centered education.
The Bluefield College Difference
Dr. Shellie Brown of the School of Education says, “When students graduate from Bluefield College with a degree in teacher education, they are completely prepared for teaching with all of the necessary certifications, qualifications, knowledge, and skills. School districts want graduates from our teacher education program because we have a stellar reputation for preparing students for the classroom.” You’ll gain that preparation through rigorous courses and more than 100 hours of actual classroom observation that begin in your second or third semester. That fieldwork prepares you for a more successful student teaching experience.
We hope you’ll visit campus to see everything we offer and how the Bluefield College difference can impact your life.
