UW-Stevens Point Physical Education
Have you always wanted to teach physical education? Are you interested in providing the spark that gets children involved in physical activities? Do you want to take an active stand against the obesity crisis facing the next generation and beyond? If you answered "yes" to these three questions you should consider enrolling in UW-Stevens Point's physical education major through our School of Physical Education & Athletic Training.
