UNF Physical Education Teacher Education program prepares teacher candidates to
successfully instruct students in K-12 physical education in addition to
directing youth in extra-curricular sports and other school-based physical
activity opportunities. The program provides systematic learning opportunities
aimed at supporting teacher candidates to develop the knowledge, skills, and
professional dispositions needed to become effective, caring, reflective, and collaborative
physical educators within diverse learning communities. These learning
opportunities are designed based on competencies identified within local,
state, and national educational and discipline-specific frameworks and are
delivered through content-based and pedagogical coursework. Further, physical
education learning opportunities are closely related to extensive field-based
experiences in local partner schools and districts allowing teacher candidates
to develop reflective practices based on the constructs of inquiry, ethic of
care, and understanding of personal epistemologies.
Those entering the College of Education and Human Services must meet University admissions requirements as well as specific COEHS admissions criteria.
*As of Spring 2016, there will be no new admits to this major.
