What Can You Do With a Kinesiology Degree?




UG PHET Program
Students in the Physical Education Teaching program are certified to teach physical education K-12 in the public schools of Wyoming. The Physical Education program is a nationally accredited program through NASPE/CAEP for meeting the National Initial Physical Education Teacher Education Standards. The program has also been nationally recognized for the integration of theory and practice, and specifically for the multiple K-12 practicum teaching opportunities provided to students as they progress through the program. The program also offers individuals the opportunity to combine state certifications/endorsements in health education K12, adapted physical education K12, and coaching. Professional placement rates for graduates of the physical education program are exceptional. Over the past decade (2008-2018), 130 students have graduated the physical education program at UW. Of those 130 graduates, 83 percent are currently in full-time employment in teaching-related fields (teacher, principal) and more than half of the graduates are teaching health and physical education in the state of Wyoming. The program has a close connection to the State Physical Education Organization (WAHPERD) and if you want to teach K-12 physical education and coach this is the program for you!
