Learning outcomes

 The department of Physical Education and Exercise Science's mission is to communicate and create knowledge about the management, pedagogy, and science of sport and physical activity.  As educated citizens, our graduates will preserve a successful ministry in their chosen fields as worldwide servant-leaders.  This mission will be achieved through innovative and engaging instruction, practical experience, service learning, scholarship, and professional service.

All of our programs have practicums and an internship in the students' chosen career field.  This is the critical element as we are able to utilize job placement to maximize educational opportunity.  From physical therapy, teaching, to a wellness center; our internships allow for an on-the-job, in-depth understanding of the career.  Our early placement practicums and the extended internship ensure students are prepared to excel in their chosen career.
