Two Physical Education programs operate within the Division of Education. The Physical Education Teacher Education program is designed to provide teacher training that leads to Kansas, PreK-12 teacher licensure. The Physical Education (non-licensure) program is designed to prepare students to enter the field of fitness. Both programs are designed with engaging curriculums that provide the depth and breadth necessary for entrance into graduate school. All of this is in the context of a Christian faith.
All Education students must meet the following Division of Education academic standard:
- Admission to the Teacher Education Program requires a minimum GPA of 3.0 overall with no less than 2.75 Content GPA and Professional Education GPA and ACT or 18 or higher;
- GPA 2.75 (Cumulative, Content, and Professional Education) with ACT of 24 or higher
Exceptions may petition the Division Chair who will report to the PEB any exceptions or conditions.
Admissions in the Teacher Education Program (TEP) is required for all EDUC 300/400 level methods courses, 300/400 ELED methods courses, and 300/400 level MUSC methods courses. Written notification of the TEP application results will be distributed from the Chair of the Division of Education to all applicants and their academic advisor.
