Bachelor of Science in Health and Physical Education


Southeastern's teacher education program is nationally accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). As part of this university-wide accreditation, teacher education degrees must be approved by an NCATE-sponsored “specialized professional association” (SPA). Our NCATE SPA is the National Association for Sport and Physical Education, and the BS in Health and Physical Education at Southeastern is an approved NASPE program.
