Health and Physical Education Programs (K-12)

If you’re interested in molding bodies as well as minds, giving students healthy habits for a lifetime, and mentoring tomorrow’s athletes, WCU’s Health and Physical Education Program is the perfect fit for you.

Undergraduates can enroll in a program to earn a Bachelor of Science in Education (B.S.Ed.) degree which will prepare you to teach in elementary, middle, and secondary schools.  Our graduates can organize and administer intramural programs, coach varsity sports, and administer athletic programs in addition to teaching health and physical education, exercise, and dance. Outside of academia, our graduates also work in YMCA/YWCAs, community recreation programs, industry and corporate fitness, and in private clubs.
