Physical Education and Recreation

EMU’s physical education and recreation program promotes a healthful, activity-oriented lifestyle, and develops competent professionals who carry a sense of ministry and service into their vocational role. Through our four physical education and recreation majors, we’ll prepare you to teach, work or guide in a variety of different settings.

The department teaches the CORE Life Wellness classes that are largely experiential focusing on creation care and stewardship of the body in relation to doing justice, loving mercy, and walking humbly with God. In addition, the department offers courses that the general student population may take such as fitness, conditioning and weight training, and skiing/snowboarding with the ultimate goal of providing students the opportunity to participate in physical activity and wellness activities.
