This major is offered through the Department of Physical Education.

It provides educational opportunities and experiences for students who are interested in obtaining certification to:

  • Teach physical education
  • Coach in public and private elementary and secondary schools.

This program of study leads to New York State provisional teaching and coaching certification for Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12.


The Jay B. Nash Award is given to two physical education majors in New York State each year by the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance. This is a prestigious honor and Roberts Wesleyan College is proud to have had three winners in the past three years.
