Covenant’s Physical and Sport Education (PSE) Department provides students with an in-depth study of the human body and its various functions as they relate to health, fitness, and sport within a Christian world and life view. Core courses provide an understanding of nutritional aspects of good health as well as a thorough study of contemporary issues in health and fitness. The department also emphasizes the value of lifestyle activities, cardiovascular fitness, muscle integrity, and lifetime recreational sports for all. The major in Sport Administration prepares graduates to pursue callings across a wide variety of career opportunities in the sport industry area from youth to professional. The minors prepare students to work in leadership positions in sport administration and coaching.
Since upper division Physical and Sport Education courses are offered on an every fourth semester rotation, students desiring to major in Sport Administration, minor in Sport Administration or Coaching, or use the Coaching or Sport Administration IDS disciplines need to begin taking courses in those areas by the first semester of their sophomore year if they plan to finish the requirements in four years. Failure to do so may cause the student to take course work beyond the traditional four year program.
