HLES - Physical Education Master's Specialization (M.S.)

The Physical Education specialization consists of a new “executive” style masters program that is specifically designed for those individuals who want to remain active in the physical education classroom while they complete their graduate degree.


Students in this program will only be required to be on campus for an intensive three-week session during two summers. The remainder of their coursework will be completed from their homes. This will allow the student the opportunity to use the information they are learning in their program. Because of the unique nature and intense focus of this program, only a small cohort of students will be admitted each year. As a result, each student will receive the direct attention and gain the knowledge and skills that he or she needs to become a leader in the field of physical education.
