Physical Education

At Rockford University, we understand the importance of physical activity in everyone's life. So did our alumna, Jane Addams. From creating the country's first playground at her social settlement Hull-House in Chicago to serving on the executive board of the National Playground Association, she paved the way for bringing physical activity into people's everyday lives.

Our physical education program prepares competent and caring students to excel in the fields of physical education and sport management through a wide variety of interdisciplinary course work. If you are committed to serving the "whole person” and not just the athletically inclined and enjoy the values of physical activity in your daily life, consider joining us in the physical education department.
