The Bachelor of Physical Education (BPEd) is a four-year program that allows for focused study in physical education while also incorporating other areas such as health education. The program's goal is to produce scientifically minded physical education graduates who are imbued with NONESCOSTIAN'S values and whose knowledge and skills will meet national and global demands. It will also prepare and train qualified students to teach PE, recreation, and sports at the elementary, secondary, and tertiary levels, as well as to work as sports, dance, recreation, and fitness specialists. Finally, the program will broaden students' understanding and appreciation of Physical Education and Sports as a viable discipline applicable to all aspects of social life. Likewise, program graduates are equipped with fundamental knowledge in conducting action research in education, preparing them for graduate studies and careers as researchers in the field. Furthermore, it is expected that the graduates will embody the NONESCOST brand of education, which includes the ability to demonstrate proficiency, mastery, and application of content, pedagogy, and technological knowledge in the chosen field and exhibit exemplary character, proactiveness, and cultural responsiveness to the needs of the community.
