Manhattanville College’s Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy program is aimed at increasing your understanding of the theories, teaching practices, and curriculum development process for increased physical activity. 


All lectures and field assignments are designed in alignment with the New York State Learning Standards in Schools and the National Standards for Physical Education. 

Students are afforded hands-on experience in each class. The Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy program at Manhattanville College makes use of a large gymnasium, three smaller teaching gymnasiums, modern weight room facilities, and a dance gymnasium to showcase the actual implementation of theory in teaching practice.

Part-time and Full-time Options

Students are also not required to have an undergraduate degree in physical education, making this program even more accessible. On average, the master’s program takes about two years to finish, although Manhattanville allows five years to complete the program. If you’re taking two or more classes a semester, you may be eligible for financial aid or an assistantship.
