We designed this program to spark your intellectual curiosity in physical education,
the promotion of physical activity, and the design and use of culturally relevant
curricula. Graduates will gain a strong understanding of issues around diversity as
they relate to effective teaching and curricular development in physical education.
The Pedagogy track is available to students who have completed an undergraduate degree
in physical education and are eligible to apply for NYS initial certification in physical
education. Students must complete their initial certification by the time they have
completed 12 credit-hours of coursework.
