Specialise in Physical Education for your Bachelor of Sport and Exercise at Massey
The Bachelor of Sport and Exercise (Physical Education) will provide you with the perfect foundation to use your talents in a professionally satisfying and productive way.
Physical education has long been recognised as an important part of an overall education. This major will provide you with the knowledge and skills to perform and teach aspects of physical education, exercise and sport in educational contexts.
As a graduate, you’ll be knowledgeable about aspects of physical education, particularly as it relates to the breadth and potential of human movement. You will be able to demonstrate the application of key teaching principles in movement education, especially as they relate to youth.
This major takes an interdisciplinary approach to study. You will:
gain practical competency in a range of physical activities
enhance your critical-thinking skills
gain insights on movement education from a socio-cultural and biophysical perspective
gain a big-picture view of the potential of physical education, taught well, to be a major positive force in society.
You could become a primary or secondary school PE teacher, by completing Massey’s Graduate Diploma of Learning and Teaching. The secondary diploma qualifies you as a teacher of health and physical education.
A Bachelor of Sport and Exercise in Physical Education is a good fit if you:
are passionate about sport and exercise
