Physical Education, Athletics & Recreation (PEAR)

Chair: Professor Gerald Young

The physical education department offers a variety of activity courses that students take to fulfill their distribution requirements. Four terms of PE courses are required for graduation. Most activity courses are co-ed and all are offered on the S/CR/NC grading system. Completion of the requirement, recommended by the end of the sophomore year, may be earned through physical education classes or participation in intercollegiate athletics and approved club sports.
