This degree prepares candidates for two licensure fields: Physical Education and Health. Please see catalog section on applying for admission to the Teacher Education Program and other program requirements for additional information. The UMW Department of Education strongly recommends that candidates seek licensure in more than one subject area (by combining one teaching major with at least one other teaching major or minor) to increase their hiring options. A Coaching Option is also available with any teaching major, but does not lead to licensure. Students who do not wish to pursue a teaching career may be interested in the BS: Health & Human Performance.
