Physical Education (B.S.)

Physical education sharpens the mind, strengthens the body, and enriches the lives of students.

Physical Education (B.S.) at USC Upstate

The Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) program prepares its majors to become certified K-12 physical education teachers. Students who major in PETE can expect classes that focus on educational theory, scientific content knowledge, pedagogical content knowledge, as well as skill and fitness development.

PETE majors are lucky to have classes in which they listen to lectures, have fun, work in relevant labs, practice teaching both peers and public school students, and participate in activity-type classes.
