• Physical Education at Hamline

    The Department of Physical Education offers a major leading to teaching licensures in Health & Physical Education. Moreover, a major in Exercise & Sports Science is offered for students wishing to pursue study in topics like Athletic Training, Biomechanics, Exercise Physiology, Sport Management, and Sport Psychology.

    Both majors are firmly grounded in the liberal arts tradition, and emphasize the contributions of parent disciplines.

    The department also provides all Hamline University students with opportunities to develop the knowledge and skill necessary to be responsible for their own health and fitness throughout their lives. 


    Announcement about the Physical Education program

    Hamline University is in the process of phasing out the Physical Education major. Current Hamline students who officially declared a major or minor in this area by December 13, 2011, will be provided the opportunity to complete their program of study. The major and minor will no longer be an option for new students.

    By early February 2012, a degree audit will be completed for all students who have declared a major or minor in Physical Education. The degree audit will help Hamline assess the time frame necessary for the phasing out the program. The goal of the phase-out process will be to both assure that the programmatic needs of those pursuing the major or minor are met, and to establish a reasonable date beyond which offering individual courses required of the major or minor will no longer be necessary.

    If you have questions about these changes, please contact Jonathan Lowery at jlowery01@hamline.edu.
