Exercise Science and Physical Education

Exercise science and physical education curriculum prepares students for careers in physical education, fitness/wellness, health education (all including K-12 licensure), recreation and athletic training. In addition to major classes, Lee offers a variety of activity, sport, and lifetime fitness classes. Our faculty are passionate about developing relationships with students to guide and inform their experience. They are expert educators with not only academic credentials but also real world experience, from former physical education teachers, to seasoned professional athletic trainers with at least fifteen years of clinical experience, to exercise science faculty with decades of teaching experience and certification in personal training and strength and conditioning. In all areas, our professors create opportunities for students to do hands-on projects in the community that bridge the classroom to real life - it’s simply a great way to learn.
