Syracuse University’s Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Health and Physical Education meets the academic requirements for New York State initial certification, in both Health AND Physical Education, therefore providing graduates with two New York State teaching certifications (all grades in Health Education and all grades in Physical Education) as well as teacher certification in states with reciprocal agreements. The New York Physical Education certification also qualifies teacher candidates to coach any sport in any school (7-12) in the state of New York. The degree program emphasizes teaching methods that encourage all children to embrace a physically active and healthy lifestyle with a focus on urban and inclusive settings. The unique location of Syracuse University and the diversity of the surrounding community provide numerous authentic field experiences in urban and suburban settings alike starting in the first year. The School of Education affords its teacher candidates the advantages of resources found only at a major research university. Our undergraduate studies are enhanced with a strong liberal arts core. Our small class sizes allow teacher candidates to develop strong, personal relationships with their professors, advisors, and peers.
