The courses required for a major in health and physical education or recreation areas are varied depending on the area of interest and the transfer institution. A two-year plan of study is completed by the student and advisor choosing from the following list of courses and following guidelines from the intended transfer institution.

The two degree offerings, Associate of Arts and Associate of Science, are relatively the same except for the emphasis in arts versus the emphasis in sciences. Both degrees are transferable to four-year institutions. Additional requirements from the transfer institutions may apply.

Education majors may be required to pass the Pre-Professional Skills Test in reading, writing, and mathematics during their freshman or early sophomore year, before admittance to a teacher’s education program at some universities. Students are urged to check P.P.S.T. requirements at other institutions.
