About

The Physical Education, Sport, and Physical Activity program from The Ohio State University prepares students to promote and teach physical activity and recreation activities to children and members of the community.

Overview

Two specialization options within the Physical Education, Sport, and Physical Activity program from The Ohio State University

  • The physical education teacher education (PETE) specialization is a competitive option that includes the requirements for teacher certification in the state of Ohio. Once a student meets the minimum requirements to be admitted into the major, he/she is automatically enrolled into the major.

Students who graduate from this program are prepared to become leaders in youth development in recreation centers, sports clubs, schools and similar locations.
