Similar to the secondary teaching emphasis of the kinesiology major, this minor prepares you to teach physical education in K-12 schools.


  • Courses cover the main topics of the major, as well as physical education methods.

Career opportunities

The kinesiology secondary teaching minor is designed to pair with a major preparing you for a teaching career. The minor lays a foundation for being able to pass the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET) in physical education. Although single subject has traditionally been grades 7-12, many school districts are hiring physical education specialists at elementary schools as well.
