B.S. in Health and Physical Education

Advisement and Curriculum


All students contemplating majoring in Health and Physical Education should make an appointment to meet with Ms. Margaret Tilley, HPE Advising Center Coordinator, to discuss the program and declare their major. Appointments can be scheduled by e-mailing

Once students declare Health and Physical Education as their major, they will be assigned a HPE Faculty Member as an advisor. It is highly recommended that majors meet with their advisor every semester to select courses, discuss program admission and eligibility requirements, and apply for field experience courses. Failure to meet regularly with advisors is likely to result in difficulties selecting the proper sequence of classes, and ultimately, delaying program admission and graduation.

Please make an appointment with your Academic Advisor prior to the start of registration!

What courses are required in the HPE Program?

The Health and Physical Education Checksheet ( Excel File / PDF ) outlines courses required in the teacher education program. However, this checksheet does not replace the need for periodic advisement from your HPE Major Advisor. Also, the Two Year Tentative Department Class Schedule ( Word / PDF ) is available to assist you with your schedule.


In what order should I take the required courses?

The Health and Physical Education program has outlined a suggested sequence of courses for our majors. However, it is highly recommended that students meet regularly with their HPE Major Advisor to select the proper sequencing of courses.


Do you have other advising questions that have not yet been addressed?

The Health and Physical Education Faculty have developed a list of frequently asked advising questions. If you still cannot locate the answer to your question, please contact your HPE Major Advisor.
