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. Students complete the academic major b y selecting courses which cover disciplinary content most relevant to their professional (or non-professional) interests.
The department prepares its graduates for careers as physical education teachers, adapted physical education teachers, coaches, athletic trainers, fitness consultants, exercise specialists, and admin istrators 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) sports management; and (5) exercise physiology. 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 pro gram, 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.
Performance is a critical area of study within the department. Skill courses in a range of sports and exercise areas are available for majors and non-majors alike who want to develop skills for a lifetime of recreational enjoyment and personal health. A full schedule of activities--from ten nis, golf and racquetball to jogging, aerobics and weight training--is offered each semester. Physical education majors can utilize these courses to gain beginning, intermediate and advanced skills to strengthen their sport and exercise backgrounds.
1. Academic Major in Physical Education (33 credits)
a. Foundational Courses
The foundational courses listed below are meant to guide prospective physical education major students in the selection of their General Education Breadth Component courses. Most are offered as recommended courses; only BIO 221 Survey of Anatomy and Physiology is required as a prerequisite. Several of the courses listed below satisfy College-wide Breadth Component requirements in the fine arts, humanities, and natural/mathematical sciences.
The courses listed below, by addressing issues related to the body, movement, learning, and valuation, provide a valuable foundation for accomplishing the aim of the physical education major curriculum, namely, to graduate students who are "physically educated."

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.
The following must be completed prior to admission:
1. Application for Admission to Athletic Training
Course requirements for the Athletic Training Concentration:
HLS 210 First Aid and CPR for Athletics
Total 49 or 50 credits
CLINICAL EXPERIENCE: The Athletic Training program at SUNY Brockport requires that all students in the concentration complete 1200 hours of clinical experience under the supervision of a NATA-certified athletic trainer before taking the certification examination. At SUNY Brockport, students are supervised by certified athletic trainers and by the team physician. Students acquire their clinical hours through PEP 471-474, Clinical Experience in Athletic Training I-IV coursework. These Clinical Experience classes are taken over a period of four consecutive semesters after acceptance into the program.
CERTIFICATION: The National Athletic Trainers' Association
Board of Certification (NATABOC) requires that all candidates seeking certification
meet the following criteria:
