The Physical Education specialization is designed for elementary teachers who wish to extend their knowledge of curriculum and instructional aspects of kindergarten, primary, and/or intermediate level physical education. This program will benefit teachers who are developing their own class curricula and teachers wishing to become resource persons for physical education at a school or district level.
Specific advice about the program may also be obtained from Faculty of Education professor,
