Requirements

Graduates from the Physical Education K-12 Teacher Education (PETE) program will be prepared to meet all standards for Utah licensure for K-12 Physical Education. They should also be prepared to meet most standards for certification in the rest of the 49 states, since the National Initial Physical Education Teacher Education Standards have been used to develop, assess, and update the program on an annual basis. The focus of this program is on enhancing student outcomes – both for university students and for their future students. Outcomes that should be met by the end of the program include scientific and theoretical knowledge, skill and fitness based competency, planning and implementation, instructional delivery and management, impact on student learning, and professionalism. PETE majors learn to individualize instruction to enhance learning for all students, regardless of their abilities.

Programs365体育比赛投注

The Department of Exercise Science and Outdoor Recreation offers two 4-year degrees. One offers a BA or BS in Exercise Science and Outdoor Recreation with a choice of emphasis in Exercise Science or Outdoor Recreation. Students completing the Exercise Science emphasis will be qualified for several different graduate schools and a variety of jobs including fitness and health promotion, exercise testing, corporate wellness, clinical exercise physiology, cardiac rehab, etc. This major could also lead to acceptance into medical, dental, physical therapy and other professional or graduate schools. 

365体育比赛投注The Exercise Science curriculum has been designed to address student needs and market demands. Students have the opportunity to practice and understand what they learn in the classroom. Our Biomechanics and Human Performance Laboratories contain state-of-the-art equipment used for lab classes and student research projects. Our equipment includes Biodex Balance System SD and a Biodex System 4, Vicon motion analysis with 12 cameras and 3 force plates, Bod Pod, 16 channel wireless EMG system, treadmills, cycle ergometers, metabolic carts, and other equipment to facilitate labs and research projects.

Students completing the Outdoor Recreation emphasis are qualified to become park interpreters, resort recreation directors, corporate recreation managers, or community recreation directors. Supported by a strong background in recreation theory, with courses like Outdoor Leadership and Recreation Risk Management, students also choose from a variety of land and water-based skills courses, including park management, program planning, backpacking, mountain biking, avalanche awareness, canoeing, and whitewater kayaking. More than a career, a major in Outdoor Recreation teaches leadership for life because graduates exit the program with enhanced personal responsibility and ability to overcome barriers.
