Physical and Health Education

In partnership with the Hope College Department of Education, we offer a secondary track in physical education (K–12) certified by the State of Michigan. We also offer a minor in health education that can be valuable in education and public or private health or wellness settings.

PE outsideHope has many features that distinguish its physical 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 education majors have the opportunity to minor in our accredited health education program.
