Physical Education and Mini Courses

Within the liberal arts framework at Tufts University, the Physical Education program offers students instruction in individual, dual and group activities that promote lifelong fitness and enjoyment. Activity courses in aquatics, racquet sports, aerobics, yoga, weight training are some examples of the diverse offerings of the department. Lecture courses are also popular amongst students and include: Emergency Care, Advanced Priniciples of Exercise, Personal Fitness and Wellness. 

Approximately fifty five courses are scheduled each academic year, and most courses are offered Fall and Spring semesters. Every effort is made to maintain limited enrollment in all courses, to provide each student with maximum personal attention from the instructors.

One-half credit is granted for courses that are skilled oriented and a total of two such credits may be applied toward the total for the degree. Introductory level courses are offered on a pass-fail basis. Theory classes of one course credit are applicable toward the degree. No advanced placement or retroactive credit will be given for any physical education courses.
