Physical Education Department
Muhlenberg College maintains a one semester physical education requirement.
Physical Education Department offerings are taught on both a semester (14 weeks) and quarter (7 weeks) calendars. All students are required to enroll PED 050 Principles of Fitness & Wellness. Physical Education courses are offered only as zero course unit experiences graded on a satisfactory (S) or unsatisfactory (U) basis.
Aside from PED 050 Principles of Fitness & Wellness, all other physical education courses are offered on an elective basis and are divided into theory courses, fitness courses, and lifetime skill courses. Fitness courses are those courses that contribute to the basic components of fitness that include cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and body composition. Lifetime skill courses contribute to the social and emotional well being of the student by emphasizing recreational competence, lifetime sport skills, and techniques for stress management.
