    General Education Requirements

    The physical education curriculum prepares students for teaching or leadership roles in schools, sports, business, community fitness programs, and related fields. Students are encouraged to select a second major or minors to qualify for emerging occupational opportunities. Contact your advisor at Williston State College to determine curriculum for the first two years.

    The curriculum outlined below is based on most common baccalaureate program requirements.  Students may earn an Associate's degree in Liberal Arts at WSC, but must transfer to a baccalaureate campus to complete a Bachelor's degree in Physical Education.
