Physical Education

You can complete many general education and elective courses required for a physical education degree at IUPUC and then transfer to the School of Physical Education & Tourism Management (PETM) at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) to complete the degree program.

If you want to ean an Indiana University degree in exercise science, fitness management and personal training, sports management, or a related field, you will work closely with your UCOL advisor to develop a personal plan of study and ensure a smooth transfer experience.

The former School of Health, Physical Education and Recreation (or HPER for short) was renamed the School of Physical Education & Tourism Management (PETM). Course descriptions still use the HPER designation, however.
