 Physical Education or Health as a Career

Concordia offers professional teaching preparation programs in physical education and health education. These programs are designed primarily to meet the needs of those who plan on careers as teachers, coaches or youth leaders. Nonteaching majors are also offered for students interested in pursuing community health/health promotion or fitness careers in sports medicine, business, health clubs, etc.

It is our purpose to graduate skilled professionals who will exert positive Christian leadership in their fields of work and be effective participants in their communities in which they live. Therefore, we encourage students entering our programs to develop all dimensions of their personality, including a positive interest in working with people.

The student majoring in physical education (teaching) learns the rules and techniques of sports; the methods used in teaching and coaching; the mechanics of human motion; and the fundamentals of health, safety, and first aid.

Students have ample opportunity to make practical use of the methods and perspectives they learn in the classroom. They may assist faculty members in teaching general physical education courses, gain actual experience in coaching through practicums, and assist in intramural sports and intercollegiate athletics.

In addition to the health courses offered by our own departments, the curriculum for the health major includes courses in related areas, such as biology and psychology, to prepare students in the entry level competencies of health education specialists

The nonteaching major in physical education include courses focusing on all aspects of wellness and fitness, such as nutrition, exercise and relaxation; a required practicum enables the student to gain hands-on experience outside the classroom.

A broad background of academic work is a valuable asset to the physical education or health major in the job market, especially to those seeking positions in the field of education. Students interested in teaching, therefore, should plan on an additional major or minor.

 General Physical Education Program

Good physical condition and regular activity are essential to a person's overall well-being. At Concordia we feel it is very important for students to develop personal routines of physical activity that will serve as the foundation for lifelong fitness and recreation. Thus, all students are required to complete two courses of physical education. One of these courses must be Wellness, a course designed to help the student understand the concepts of fitness and its relation to physical and mental well-being, and where students participate in various fitness activities. For the other course, students may choose from a variety of activity courses, including cycling, jogging, swimming, golf, tennis, raquetball, soccer, bowling, badminton, various forms of dance, cross-country skiing and volleyball.

 Intramural Program

Concordia's program in intramural sports provides opportunities for friendly athletic competition among students. Approximately 50 percent of the student body is involved in men's, women's and coed teams from residence halls, societies, organizations and off-campus groups. Although a faculty member supervises the program, students manage the teams, officiate games and assume responsibility for much of the organizational work. Intramural events include flag football, volleyball, basketball, softball, badminton, golf, tennis, indoor track and field, baseball, wallyball, bowling, swimming, floor hockey and table tennis.
