About

The Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) degree at West Virginia University, offered by the College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences, is offered fully online and designed for teachers with demanding schedules who need to balance work, family, and education.

Overview

The unique sequencing of theoretical courses of this Physical Education Teacher Education program from West Virginia University and applied labs allows teachers to apply concepts immediately with learners in their own K-12 classrooms. 

Program highlights

Some states and school districts may provide an endorsement for certified teachers upon completion of the program and after passing content area exams such as the PRAXIS II. This is a non-licensure program in WV, however, and does not provide initial teaching certification in physical education.
