Adapted Physical Education

The undergraduate APE certificate, available to undergraduate students pursuing teacher certification in EC-12 Physical Education, aims to increase the number of entry-level APE teachers in Texas and across the United States. Completion of this certificate will prepare you to deliver effective physical education instruction to students with disabilities and will increase the graduates' marketability; as school districts are able to hire them to fulfill more than one need for the district (i.e., certified to teach general and adapted PE). Students who complete this certificate program will be eligible to take the exam to earn a National Certification in Adapted Physical Education through the National Consortium for Physical Education for Individuals with Disabilities (NCPEID).
