Health & Physical Education PK-12 (licensure for teaching in schools)
The PK-12 concentration prepares students for teaching health and physical education in PK-12 schools. Required fieldwork and hands-on teaching experiences at all levels (including adapted physical education) ensures that students gain the skills necessary to effectively teach in a school setting.
Many students elect to complete the two courses required for a Driver Education Instructor Endorsement. This endorsement is beneficial for HPE students interested in teaching at the high school level.
Students interested in coaching should complete the Coaching Minor which enables them to meet the requirements of the Virginia High School League to coach in the state of Virginia.
Students earning PK-12 Licensure in HPE may obtain a master’s degree through an 11-month program at Longwood.
