B.S. in Physical Education
The program in physical education leads to provisional New York State certification for students who plan to teach at elementary or secondary school levels. Course work includes strong preparation in the liberal arts, health and exercise sciences, teacher education, professional theory, and professional skills. A full semester of student teaching in the senior year is required in this program.

Medical clearance by the Ithaca College health center is required for participation in any activity course. Students who do not have such clearance will not be able to complete the requirements for this degree.

All candidates for teaching certification must attend a two-hour workshop on child abuse identification and prevention, and a two-hour workshop on drug and alcohol abuse. The evening workshops are offered each semester.

B.S. in Health Education
This program prepares students to educate others about personal, family, and community health concerns, including maintaining good health and preventing illness. Graduates may teach health in elementary and secondary schools or serve in public health and social service agencies. The curriculum has a broad, interdisciplinary orientation that emphasizes the biological, psychological, and sociological aspects of health. Students also receive on-the-job experience in a one-semester student teaching assignment. Students who complete this major qualify to take the national examination to be certified as health education specialists.

All candidates for teaching certification must attend a two-hour workshop on child abuse identification and prevention. The evening workshop is offered once each semester.

Special Academic Status Policy for Health Education Majors
Students who wish to do their student teaching any time during the senior year must file an application early in the spring semester of the junior year and receive approval from the Department of Health Promotion and Human Movement.

B.S. in Health and Physical Education
The dual major in health and physical education enables students to become certified to teach in two areas - health education and physical education. Upon graduation, students are eligible for New York State provisional teacher certification in health education K-12 and in physical education K-12. This dual certification offers increased professional opportunities because of the preparation in two areas and meets the needs of students who desire to teach both health and physical education in the public schools of New York State.

Course work includes strong preparation in the liberal arts, health and exercise sciences, physical education, teacher education, professional theory, and professional skills. A full semester of student teaching in the senior year is required. It should be noted that because this program prepares students in two areas, health and physical education, there is relatively little room left for electives. For those students whose career interests lie within these areas, however, this program offers considerable depth in two highly related areas within a challenging curriculum.

Medical clearance by Ithaca College's Hammond Health Center is required for participation in any activity course. Students who do not have such clearance will not be able to complete the requirements for this degree program.

All candidates for teaching certification must attend a two-hour workshop on child abuse identification and prevention. The evening workshop is offered once each semester.

Special Academic Status Policy for Health and Physical Education Dual Majors
Students who wish to do their student teaching any time during the senior year must file an application early in the spring semester of the junior year and receive approval from the Department of Health Promotion and Human Movement.

To be eligible, students must have at least a C average (2.00) in all work completed before the semester of student teaching; at least a C average in 330-21000 and 395-34000; and at least a C average in 660-33200, 660-33300, 662-36000, and 662-42000.

B.S. in Community Health Education
The community health education major has two main objectives. The first is to provide professional preparation for those who plan health education careers in public or voluntary health organizations. The second is to provide a sound undergraduate educational foundation for graduate studies in community health education and other health-related professions. Students who choose this major must complete a concentration or planned interdisciplinary combination. Concentrations include gerontology, nutrition, substance abuse services, and work site health promotion. Students who complete this major qualify to take the national examination to be certified as health education specialists.
