Physical Education, Exercise Science and Health 健康與體育運動科學

PHY ED, EX SCI & HEALTH

Short Description

The aim of the BEd Programme in Physical Education, Exercise Science and Health is to train physical education teachers, coaches, sports management and health promotion personnel for local academic institutions and government and private organisations. Completion of the programme leads to the award of a BEd degree, a qualification recognised as equivalent to a Postgraduate Diploma in Education, thereby entitling graduates to enter the teaching profession immediately after graduation. There is increasing recognition of the importance of health improvement through physical education and exercise. The Programme has four core components: health, physical education, exercise science and advanced professional skills, as well as capstone experience such as Teaching Practice, Internships and Research Project. Students must take 147 credits (including 104 units in their major programme) within five years to graduate. The programme trains students as generalists in sports and physical education or as specialists in the areas of exercise physiology, sports biomechanics, sports psychology, sports sociology, physical education pedagogy, health and fitness, and testing and measurement. Students may choose any of the aforementioned specialised topics as their graduation research project.
