Health & Physical Education

Are you passionate for sharing knowledge with future generations?

MVNU's Education Department has long been known for the quality of its education programs because of the unique opportunities for extensive hands-on field experience offered to students starting freshman year. This kind of experience will bulk up your résume, allow you to make connections with local schools and educators, and help you feel comfortable and confident in the classroom as quickly as possible.

The Health & Physical Education program is a multi-age licensure program encompassing grades Prekindergarten through 12. Students would graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education/Health Education degree and two Ohio teaching licenses – Health & Physical Education. MVNU’s program is one of the few in the state that offers dual licensure in these two programs.

  • NCATE/CAEP accreditation — MVNU’s education programs hold the highest standard of recognition awarded to education programs across the country.
  • Learning abroad — You will have the opportunity to complete part of your student teaching internationally in Central America, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia. You’ll get an in-depth look at what education looks like globally and be better prepared to be an excellent educator wherever you choose to begin your career.
  • Quality faculty — All professors in this program have professional experience in teaching and/or administration in public or private schools. This means you’ll be learning from people who have been where you’re going.
