Physical Education & Sport Performance
The Physical Education & Sport Performance program is among the best in the United States in preparing teachers who exemplify best practices in the PK-12 setting and professionals who promote high quality physical activity opportunities for individuals across the lifespan. The program offers three undergraduate degrees, two graduate degrees, one endorsement, and one minor, and places a strong emphasis on field experience, internships and professional development opportunities across all degree options.
Professional Licensure Disclosure: This program area includes courses of study that are designed to prepare students to sit for applicable licensure or certification in Ohio. If you plan to pursue licensure or certification in a state other than Ohio, please review state educational requirements for licensure or certification and contact information for state licensing boards at Kent State's website for professional licensure disclosure.
For candidates interested in graduate studies, we have an initial Ohio teacher licensure program at the graduate level (MAT - Physical Education concentration), and courses leading to the Ohio Adapted Physical Education Endorsement. The Kent State University Physical Education & Sport Performance program has been approved by the Ohio Board of Regents to offer the Ohio Adapted Physical Education (APE) endorsement for teachers who already have a K-12 physical education teaching license. The endorsement consists of two graduate level courses (CI 65037 Adapted Physical Education & CI 65592 Practicum in APE).
