Health and Physical Education (HPE)
Total education involves education of the soul, mind, and body. The body is God's temple for those who are in Christ; therefore, it is everyone's responsibility to be good stewards of the body God has provided. A physical education minor will prepare students in the basic fundamentals of health and physical education. The minor may also provide another teaching emphasis to those who are seeking employment in education.
