Physical Education

Overview

If you have a passion for fitness, coaching and education, then a career as a physical education (PE) teacher could be a great fit for you. 

Trevecca’s Bachelor of Science in physical education prepares students to gain licensure to teach kindergarten through twelfth grade PE. The curriculum provides a vibrant, well-rounded educational foundation while also equipping students with the knowledge needed to succeed on Praxis testing requirements in order to become certified to teach throughout the state.

As part of the program, Trevecca offers an additional endorsement that allows students to teach health education in addition to PE. 

Your Trevecca experience will include:

  • Small class sizes
  • A variety of men’s and women’s sports from which you can choose to participate
  • A distinctly Christian environment
  • Mentoring relationships with professors
  • Coursework in science classes such as Kinesiology, Biology and Anatomy and Physiology in order to prepare you to succeed on required Praxis tests to become certified
  • Student teaching opportunities in Nashville
