Physical and Health Education

In partnership with the Hope College Department of Education, we offer K–12 physical and health education certification by the State of Michigan. 

PE outsideHope has many features that distinguish its physical and health education program from others:

  • Small class sizes that allow students to receive individualized attention
  • Student placement in local classrooms beginning in their first semester of the program
  • All of our graduates receive certifications and training in HIV/AIDS as well as questions, persuade and refer (QPR)

All Hope College physical and health education majors must complete the education department's course sequence for K-12 certification.
