Physical and Health Education
An integral part of a liberal arts education, physical and health education curriculum educates through movement, cognitive development, and social interaction. Students can examine current health issues and learn to manage stress. Through activities such as golf, weight training, skiing/ snowboarding, and various levels and styles of dance, they can develop physical skills that contribute to healthful lifestyles and leisure-time fun.
The combined program of physical and health education educates through movement, cognitive development, and social experiences. The program emphasis is the acquisition of physical skills, which contribute to the development of healthful lifestyles and leisure-time pursuits. MBC students must complete at least one class from each of the three principle concentrations, totaling a minimum of two credit hours.
Physical Education is a part of MBC’s School of Education, Health, and Social Work.
Exercise and recreation … are as necessary as reading; I will say rather more necessary, because health is worth more than learning. A strong body makes the mind strong.
