As a specialist discipline, physical education requires that prospective students meet recognized national standards. We are the lead institution for the preparation of physical education teachers in Nova Scotia. Our physical education teachers are prepared in the teaching of physical education, outdoor education, and health education. The Faculty of Education accepts approximately 20 physical education specialists across the elementary, middle, and secondary education programs. These graduates are actively recruited for their holistic leadership abilities across the health, physical, and outdoor education spectrum.
