Physical Education

PEA student majoring in physical education may pursue work as a K-12 teacher, a recreation director, fitness trainer, athletic coach, sports trainer, or in other related fields. When planning to transfer to a baccalaureate institution students should check specific requirements at the school of their choice and include selection of a minor area of study along with a physical education major. DCC has an articulation agreement in Education with MSU-Billings. The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans.  These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.

PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer.  They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC.  Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.
