Students in the nationally-recognized Physical Education Program at Coastal Carolina University learn the art and science of teaching movement to PreK-12 students through laboratory, research and field experiences. 


They learn theory and principles of human movement in the areas of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, psychology and motor behavior. 

Students develop and analyze fundamental motor, fitness and sport skills necessary to model, deliver and assess quality instruction. Students learn best practices in teaching through a sequential program of pedagogical skill development, which culminates in teaching licensure.
