Physical Education and Coaching
Do you like helping people achieve what they never thought they could? If you would enjoy building kids’ strength, health, and self-confidence, a major in Physical Education may be for you.
Physical Education majors at Erskine College learn to teach exercise, calisthenics, sports, health, and nutrition. Students must maintain a high level of personal fitness as well as a strong academic record.
We encourage students to enter this major who have a passion for teaching at all levels and to every age. Students should not consider the PE major only as a way to enter coaching. Generally the best teachers make the best coaches, and physical education majors should make excellent teaching their primary goal.
Students who complete this degree will be prepared to obtain certification to teach PE to students from Kindergarten through high school.
