Physical Education is instruction in the development of motor skills and health-based behaviors of primary and secondary school students. Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement and its impact on health, society, and quality of life.
CSU Bakersfield offers a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree in Physical Education and Kinesiology (PEAK). The PEAK major provides a broad knowledge base in human structural features and maturation. In addition to a strong knowledge base the Department strives to implement real-world applications and build a strong sense of community. Students can choose a concentration in Physical Education (which prepares students for the State of California Single Subject Credential) or in Exercise Science.
The PEAK department also offers a series of Theory of Coaching courses, a minor in Physical Education and Kinesiology, and a variety of activity courses that provide recreation and fitness opportunities for all CSUB students..Please click on the links at left for more information about the PEAK department at CSUB.
The Physical Education and Kinesiology program gave me the knowledge and support to pursue my life long career. I have met the best professors who care about the students, and many students who have become close friends.
