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 the elementary and secondary (6-12)level as well as coursework in 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 earning PK-12 Licensure in HPE may obtain a master’s degree through an 11-month program at Longwood.
