 At Stillman, we will prepare you to be certified as a physical education teacher for grades pre-kindergarten through 12. Together we will train you to start a career as a teacher/ coach. You may also choose to focus on a non-teaching major that could lead to opportunities working in fitness centers, or you may become an exercise instructor. You may also choose to focus on a non-teaching major that could lead to such opportunities as working in fitness center as an exercise instructor or fitness trainer.

You will take classes in areas such as psychology and education that will prepare you to communicate with diverse populations.

You will gain the skills in the areas of human performance and movement that will prepare you for a variety of job opportunities. Your advisor will assist you in matching your courses to your career path.
