A B.A. in Physical Education offers four options in the major. The Pre-Physical Therapy Option provides some of the prerequisites for Physical Therapy schools and can serve as a pre-medical preparation program. The Fitness Director Option enables students to assume leadership positions in fitness establishments in both public and private sectors. The Physical Education Teaching Option is designed for students seeking a teaching career in elementary or secondary physical education, or planning to enter graduate programs in preparation for teaching careers at the college or university levels.

Within the Physical Education Minor, two options are offered. The Coaching minor is for students planning to work as coaches in chosen areas of sports specialization. The Teaching minor qualifies credentialed teachers in other subject areas to teach Physical Education in grades K-9.

Requirements for the certificate are based on guidelines established by the American College of Sports Medicine and the Association of Fitness in Business and Industry.
