Physical and health education programs prepare students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to develop and maintain healthy, active and lifelong lifestyles. The field includes opportunities in health, nutrition, exercise science, sports medicine, sports psychology, wellness and fitness management.

Curricular Outcomes
At the completion of this curriculum, students should be able to:

  • Demonstrate a basic understanding of how the human body functions and performs in a variety of activities and environments
  • Identify risks and treatments for common injuries due to physical exercise, activity and sport
  • Perform adult CPR and first aid skills in accordance with American Red Cross standards
  • Discuss the importance of lifetime fitness for the establishment and maintenance of a healthy lifestyle
  • Demonstrate the ability to use goal-setting to enhance one or more dimensions of wellness

The following plan of classes is a general guide to prepare students to pursue a physical education degree at a college or university. To prepare for such a degree and at the same time meet MHCC degree requirements, follow one of the transfer degree options on pages 10-17.

Students receiving financial aid must be certificate or degree seeking and following official MHCC certificate or degree requirements.

Admission and degree requirements vary among colleges and universities. Students are advised to:

  • Contact the transfer university to confirm specific admission/major/degree requirements.
  • Consult with a faculty adviser or the MHCC Academic Advising and Transfer Center early to develop an educational plan.

Note: Community colleges do not award transfer degrees in a subject area, but do award an Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree, an Associate of Science Oregon Transfer – Business degree or an Associate of Science degree.

Oregon transfer students seeking a Bachelor of Arts degree must complete the second year of a language other than English (201-203 or equivalent).

For alternative degree opportunities, please refer to Wilderness Leadership and Experiential Education degree, page 125.
