Liberal Arts - Physical Education/Recreation

Associate in Arts (A.A.) Degree
The PE degree option prepares students for transfer as physical education majors to four year colleges and universities by having them complete a minimum of 6 college level courses. (HED 150, HED 200, PED 225 and 3 one credit activity classes). The option provides students with a foundation of knowledge for professional undergraduate study. Students will be able to appreciate the scientific principles and theoretical background of physical activities. Students will also develop the leadership responsibilities necessary in a teaching learning environment. In addition, students will understand the importance of health maintenance activities on both physiological and psychological well being. The Health and Physical Education faculty also provides service programs that promote wellness and the wise use of leisure time through course offerings.

Why study the Liberal Arts?
A Liberal Arts education helps students develop strong and ordered minds as they explore the world’s collected wisdom in literature, history, mathematics, science, philosophy and the arts. It teaches them to recognize and construct arguments, to appreciate diverse cultures and perspectives, and to have a sense of scholarship about the lives and events that have gone before. Liberal Arts emphasis on language helps students broaden their cultural perspective and become more aware of their own identity. Courses comprising a Liberal Arts education at Middlesex County College are the core of all liberal arts programs at the bachelor’s level. Students may select the general degree, the most flexible of all our Liberal Arts programs, or one of the many specialized options.

Are there any requirements that must be satisfied before taking courses in the major?
Algebra I is a prerequisite for all majors. Competency in Algebra I may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or by completion of the appropriate course. Students must also have a grade of “C” or better in one year of high school laboratory science.

How long will it take to complete this degree?
Once students complete required developmental coursework (if any), the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. Students may shorten the amount of degree completion time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions.

Transfer Information

Our students transfer to 4-year colleges and universities around the globe. We’ve had students transfer to every state, including Alaska and Hawaii.

The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements are being worked out with institutions granting baccalaureate degrees in Public Health to facilitate the transfer process. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.
