Associate’s Degree in Physical Education Studies Now Offered at SUNY Rockland Community College
Spring Semester Begins Jan 26, Registration Continues Through Feb 1
Suffern, NY - SUNY Rockland Community College now offers an Associate in Science degree in Physical Education Studies, which can lead to careers in teaching, fitness training, athletic training, sports management, sports marketing, recreation leadership and in the wellness industry. Spring Semester begins Jan 26. Enrollment now underway.
Students can transfer to a four-year institution, or, for those who have a teaching degree, but would like to become a Physical Education teacher, they may now take the core courses of the major. The Physical Education Studies program combines liberal arts introductory courses in Science, Psychology, Math and English with Physical Education theory and activity classes.
Although the program is geared toward students transferring to four-year colleges, some career opportunities for those who earn an associate’s include community recreation leader and coaching.
SUNY Cortland and Brockport have signed an articulation agreement with the College, where the majority of credits earned for the Physical Education Studies Degree at RCC will transfer to those four-year institutions.
Patricia Zodda, Assistant Professor in the Physical Education Department, said, "The degree also makes students aware of the other opportunities the major has to offer besides teaching. Physical Education is an umbrella to the Exercise Science field."
Students can begin earning a Physical Education degree this spring, beginning January 26. Registration continues through February 1. For more information, visit: www.sunyrockland.edu, or call Admissions at 845-574-4224. Financial aid and childcare available.
