The Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Education at CSUB covers a broad knowledge base that represents several disciplines (traditional physical education, coaching, athletic training, and exercise science). Students majoring in Physical Education have two options to choose from: Teacher Preparation and Non-Teaching.
Students who complete the Teacher Preparation Option will fulfill requirements for the State of California Single Subject Credential in Physical Education as established by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC). Students wishing to teach in the junior-high and senior-high school levels will be required to take additional courses to obtain the single subject teaching credential (in addition to the Physical Education Major curriculum).
Students who desire to coach as well as teach have the opportunity to select various coaching courses within the major to prepare for coaching careers.
The Non-Teaching Option provides students with the opportunity to select appropriate courses to prepare for other careers not related to physical education teaching (i.e., corporate fitness). The Non-Teaching Option also provides students with the opportunity to prepare for advanced studies in related disciplines (i.e., exercise science) and professional academic programs (i.e., physical therapy).
The Department of Physical Education is currently in the process of expanding its curriculum to include two new options that would replace the Non-Teaching Option: Athletic Training and Exercise Science. Although it is promising that these new options will come into existence in the near future, information on these options could not be formally published in this catalog. For further information regarding these options, please contact the Department of Physical Education.
In addition to the academic curriculum,
the Department of Physical Education offers a variety of activity courses
(100 series) for recreational/fitness purposes. These courses are offered
on a credit, no-credit basis and are not applicable to the Physical Education
major requirements. Only 8 units of 100-level activity courses may be applied
toward the 186-unit CSUB graduation requirement. Enrollment in PED 160
(Jogging), 161 (Walking), and 162 (Biking) is limited to a combined total
of two units per quarter.
REQUIREMENTS FOR THE MAJOR
Students interested in majoring in Physical Education should obtain general information about the program early in their lower division career. After declaring a major in Physical Education, they should meet with an appointed advisor within the department to plan a course of study. This is essential given that certain courses are offered only once a year and that many courses have prerequisites which require completion of sequenced non-major and major courses in order to fulfill these requirements. A grade of C or better is required for all courses within the major in order to graduate.
Core Courses (Both Options; 36 units):
* PED 200 is a prerequisite to all other PED courses 300 level and above (it can be taken concurrently). Therefore, it should be taken as soon as possible within the required course work.
*Cognate Courses (Both Options; 29 units):
