Health and Physical Education

 

Health and Physical Education Program Requirements

The Division of Health and Physical Education offers courses that satisfy core curriculum requirements, HPE Division major and minor programs of study, requirements for other University majors, and general electives.

HPE Core Curriculum Requirements
To satisfy the health and physical education core requirement of the University, all students must complete a one-half credit computer course, HPE 110W, Personal Wellness, and complete an additional minimum of one and one-half credits from a menu of sports, fitness, recreational activity courses and/or dance technique courses from HPE 131W, 132W, 133W, 141W and/or from a menu of classroom course offerings in health and wellness as designated applicable to the HPE Core. Students may select any of the activity and technique courses offered, however, no specific activity or technique course may be repeated for credit except at a more advanced level. Students who have individual needs or are physically challenged may confer with HPE faculty to discuss selection of appropriate courses.

Note that the HPE Core requirement as outlined begins for students who enter BW in the
2004-2005 academic year.

Among objectives for the required HPE Core courses are the following:

  • The development of essential knowledge in health and wellness issues especially as it may relate to leadership and advocacy for healthy lifestyles for individuals, families, and communities now and in the future.
  • The development of knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values related to achieving and maintaining optimal levels of physical fitness and personal wellness.
  • The development of motor abilities that contribute to skill, proficiency, ease, and grace in the control of one's body.
  • The development of worthy leisure-time recreational habits, skills, and attitudes.
  • The development of an appreciation of the art and science of human movement both as a participant and as a spectator.

Diversity requirement of the Core Curriculum
HPE 423D may be applied to the core diversity requirement.

 

Divisional Majors and Minors
For students planning to major in any one of the majors offered by the HPE Division, the Division recognizes the preceding objectives, explores the body of knowledge, and provides a foundation for students preparing to teach, coach, manage and/or pursue graduate study in areas related to the major. Majors are offered in physical education, sport management, athletic training, pre-physical therapy, exercise science, health promotion and education and public health. Academic minors are designed to supplement any academic major. Minors are offered in health promotion and education, child and family, athletic coaching, recreation, orthopedic assessment and treatment and personal wellness. Additional study is recommended beyond the minimum credits and required courses for each major and minor including HPE 050, 070, special topic seminars, and honors courses.

 

Sport Management Major

Computer Code: HPEM

The major is designed for students who are interested in pursuing a career in professional sports, collegiate athletics, amateur sports, collegiate recreation, youth sports, or organizations with a sport-related component such as private clubs, government agencies, and city recreation departments. Students completing this major must also complete a second major or minor in public relations or a second major or minor offered by the Division of Business Administration.

Athletic Training Major

Computer Code: HPEA

This CAATE (Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education) accredited major is designed to prepare students to become skilled allied health care practitioners capable of working in the athletic training field as well as a multitude of other settings. Upon completion, students are eligible and expected to sit for the BOC (Board of Certification) examination in order to become a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC). Major emphasis is placed on the development of cognitive knowledge and psychomotor skills and is accomplished by the integration of didactic coursework with laboratory, practicum, clinical and internship experiences. Students must be selected into the clinical experience component of the major and must pass eligibility standards to continue in the program.  Admission is based on, but not limited to: documented clinical observation hours, prerequisite course grades, overall grade point average, evaluations, proficiency exam, and letters of recommendation.  Details of program accreditation and selection standards are available from the Athletic Training Education Program Director as well as accessible on the Baldwin Wallace University Athletic Training Education Program website.  http://www.bw.edu/academics/hpe/programs/at/
