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.

Morgan was born in Niceville, FL (about 50 miles east of Pensacola) but grew up mostly in Bellevue, NE. She is an Alum of Alpha Chi Omega and received her B.S. in Physical Education from UWF. She has recently graduated from the Physical Education master's program in December 2012.
What she enjoyed about the Physical Education masters program was learning more about the profession of being a physical education teacher. She thought it was interesting to see all the opportunities there were to grow as a professional within the program and abroad. She also liked that the Physical Education masters program was an executive style program which allows you to work at your own pace. This helped her get some extra teaching experience by substitute teaching in the community.
Her plan is to teach physical education at the middle, high school, or college/university level. She would also love to coach basketball or softball and plans to further her education and pursue an Ed.D. in Physical Education and Health.
Morgan worked as a graduate assistant in the Department of Health, Leisure, and Exercise Science (HLES) helping with Non-Traditional Sports (PEP 2500) and taught the 10-12 age group in the Movement Academy last semester. She has recently accepted a job and we are thrilled for her. She will still able to graduate in the fall while accepting her new position during mid-semester. We wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.
