Health and Physical Education with Teacher Certification

Empowerment For Learning

The HPETE Area links students choosing P-12 teacher education with the Campbellsville University Department of Education. The Secondary Education minor is a 33 hour program. The HPETE track with certification in Health & Physical Education and Secondary Education requires 133 hours for completion rather than the normal 120 hours for graduation.

Empowerment for learning is one of the special joys and outcomes of becoming a teacher. As a result of program experiences, you will be equipped with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to create a classroom climate in which your students can learn. The education program has a distinguished record of preparing students to become caring teachers.

The mission of the teacher education program at Campbellsville University is to prepare teachers for their respective fields by providing an academic infrastructure based on scholarship, service and Christian leadership. The primary goal of the program is to advance scholars who are competent, caring and qualified, who can positively impact student learning, and who are committed to life-long learning in a global society.

Campbellsville University School of Education is accredited by The National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), the Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board (EPSB). The University is a part of the NASDTEC interstate agreement (National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education) which facilitates certification of our graduates in other states.
