About the Program

Physical Education University of Manitoba

The objective of our physical education program is to help students understand and appreciate the body's capacity for movement, as well as the physical, mental, social and emotional outcomes of physical activity that positively contribute to health and well-being.

The Bachelor of Physical Education is a three-year degree program (University 1 plus two years) designed for students who wish to teach physical education in the school system. The program offers an exciting mix of theory and practical courses, and includes a curriculum related to teaching physical education at the Early, Middle, or Senior Years. Students are provided with opportunities to learn and practice the skills of designing, delivering and assessing meaningful and relevant physical activities and programs in accordance with Canadian Council of University Physical Education and Kinesiology Administrator (CCUPEKA) program accreditation standards.

In order to enter the teaching profession, students with the BPE degree must also complete the two-year After-Degree Certification program in the Faculty of Education.
