Program Summary

The courses required for a physical education major vary depending on the area of interest and the transfer institution. A two-year Colby Community College plan is set up by the student and advisor choosing from the courses below 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 on arts versus the emphasis on 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 re-Professional Skills Test in reading, writing, and mathematics during their first year 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.
