Programs in Physical Education and Sport
The major in physical education and sport provides opportunities for the study of physical activity including sport, exercise, play, and other physical activities. The academic major curriculum provides students with an opportunity to know how and why a physical activity-enriched lifestyle contributes to the good life. The curriculum provides numerous opportunities for students to participate and reflect upon their personal experiences in physical activity.

The aim of the physical education major curriculum is to graduate students who are “physically educated.” As such, the core of the major is focused on the study of motor skill and physical fitness. Students learn the principles of acquiring skill and fitness, seek to improve their own levels of skill and fitness, and learn to appreciate the contributions of skill and fitness to human development. (Please note that all physical education majors must pass all components of a health-related physical fitness test that includes measures of body composition, aerobic functioning, muscular strength and endurance, and flexibility.) Students complete the academic major by selecting courses which cover disciplinary content most relevant to their professional (or non-professional) interests.

The department also prepares its graduates for careers as physical education teachers, adapted physical education teachers, coaches, athletic trainers, fitness consultants, exercise specialists, and administrators of sport-related programs and businesses. In addition to the 33-credit academic major, therefore, the department offers professional concentrations in: (1) teacher certification; (2) teacher certification and adapted physical education; (3) athletic training; (4) sport management; and (5) exercise physiology. Acceptance into a professional concentration is not guaranteed; interested students should consult the admission requirements for each of the concentrations outlined on the following pages. Teacher certification programs are offered only in conjunction with the major in physical education. The concentrations in athletic training, sport management, and exercise physiology are available to both physical education majors and non-majors. (Additional prerequisites may be required for students lacking a strong background in physical education.) The department also offers a minor in coaching. Since individuals who complete the teacher certification program in physical education are also certified to coach upon completion of their program, the minor in coaching is directed to non-certification students (and is also open to non-majors). Of course, teacher certification students may select coaching courses as part of their program of study. Specific requirements for the major and for each special program are described below.

C. Contractual Liberal Arts Physical Education Major

The Contractual Liberal Arts Physical Education Major (CLAPEM) is an option that permits the student to design an individualized physical education major program drawn from the total academic offerings of the Department of Physical Education and Sport. This option is intended to accommodate the interests of physical education major students who choose not to apply to any of the department's professional concentrations. While the student is required to take the six course, 21-credit academic core, the remaining 12 credits are elective opportunities to be decided upon in consultation with the student's major advisor.

2. Professional Programs (A through F below)

A. Teacher Certification

The teacher education program leads to "initial certification" to teach physical education in grades preK-12 in New York state. (To obtain "professional certification" students must earn a master's degree within three years of completing the bachelor's degree). This program also certifies successful students to coach in New York. Depending on how students meet requirements in general education, the academic major in physical education, and in teacher education, it may take more than 120 credits to complete this program.

Admission: In order to meet NYS Education Department standards for teacher certification programs, only a limited number of students each semester can be admitted in the program as evidenced by enrollment in PEP 441. To be eligible for one of those seats, students must have a minimum of 45 college credits and a 2.5 SUNY Brockport grade point average (for at least 12 credits of work, where no more than 25 percent of the credits are in activity classes). Depending on the level of student interest in the program, it is possible that students who are otherwise eligible for the program (i.e., credits and GPA) still may get "closed out" of one of the available seats in a given semester. These students, providing they maintain the necessary GPA, can attempt to enroll again in the next semester.

D. Athletic Training Concentration

Athletic Training is an allied health profession dealing with the prevention, recognition, management and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. In this role, the athletic trainer can successfully decrease injury time and promote a quick, safe return to competition. Certified Athletic Trainers (ATC's) typically work in a variety of settings including colleges and universities, professional teams, high schools, and sports medicine clinics. Recently, the recognition and demand for ATC's has increased greatly due to the athletic and recreational nature of our society.

The undergraduate Athletic Training Program at SUNY Brockport is accredited through the Commission for Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP). Athletic Training is a concentration within the Department of Physical Education and Sport. The concentration is open to any major, although physical education is the most common choice of our students. The program is carefully designed to meet competencies identified by the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA) and prepares students to successfully complete the NATA certification exam. The program at Brockport is supervised by four Certified Athletic Trainers who all have teaching and clinical responsibilities.

Admission: Admission into the athletic training concentration is competitive and requires formal application. The admission procedure may be initiated during or after completion of PES 385 Basic Athletic Training and BIO 221 Survey of Anatomy and Physiology.
