Ever had to choose between sports and academics? Well, you don’t really have to.

Gone are the days when playtime comes after long, focused study time. You can do both! With schools recognizing the importance of physical health to overall development (read: not just being book-smart), students now have more opportunities to merge fun and learning a.k.a. pursue sports and fitness as full-fledged degrees and, eventually, professional careers.

If you hail from the beautiful Mindanao and you want to learn more about sports and fitness in a classroom setting, you might be interested in taking any of these three courses: 

Bachelor of Physical Education

There’s more to physical education than sports and exercise. Just as how you warm up before engaging in physical activity, warming up your knowledge on physical education is necessary if you want to pursue a career in health and fitness. That’s where a degree in physical education comes in! 

In this four-year program, you’ll learn both the practical and theoretical aspects of physical activities, as well as foundational courses that contribute to a person’s overall health and well-being. You can choose between the two course majors, namely: School Physical Education and Sports and Wellness Management. Take your pick!

Throughout this 1 to 2-year program, you’ll learn different coaching principles, styles, and techniques you can apply when you handle a team or supervise sports-related training and activities. You can choose among different certifications like Coaching Pedagogy, Applied Sports Science, Professional Practice in Coaching, Sports Development, and Sports Teams Management. Sounds like fun!
