Goals and Objectives

It is the goal of the Physical Education program to enhance the physical, motor, mental and social development of all participating students. It is the objective of the Department to introduce to students a broad based program of instruction in physical education activities from which they will derive lifetime fitness benefits.


Curriculum Course Requirements:

  • Before graduation each undergraduate is required to successfully complete 9 units of physical education. This requirement may be satisfied entirely or in part by participation in intercollegiate athletics, or successful completion of physical-education class coursework.
  • All grades are issued pass/fail.
  • Of this 9-unit PE requirement, only 3 units may be counted from PE 1.
  • A maximum of 6 units per term may be applied toward graduation requirements with the total not to exceed 36 units. Participation as a bona fide member of an intercollegiate team for the period covered by the sport in a given term satisfies the requirement for that term.
