The Master of Arts in Education in Physical Education was developed and established by the School of Sport Sciences at Wingate University in May, 2006. This program is designed for students who have earned an undergraduate degree in Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) and have successfully completed a student teaching experience in physical education. The program consists of 36 semester hours leading to the Master of Arts in Education in Physical Education Degree with a graduate-level Class “M” licensure in Physical Education (K-12). All courses include a research component that involves the teaching process and/or factors affecting the learning/teaching/education process. Students complete a portfolio as a culminating project consisting of related research materials designed to enhance the decision-making and leadership abilities of the graduates.
The students who complete the program are prepared to assume a major role in formulating individual/group goals and planning approaches to meet them. Also, they will have an enhanced knowledge in the use of technology. Finally, the underpinning wellspring of the graduate program is the “Effective Facilitator of Learning Conceptual Model.”
