Students planning to major in health education, physical education or recreation at a four-year institution should follow the Black Hawk College Associate in Arts curriculum. The completion of the course of study outlined will satisfy graduation requirements of Black Hawk College. Since universities may require specific courses for a health, physical education or recreation major, students should identify the school of transfer as soon as possible and follow that curriculum.

Although there are employment opportunities for associate degree graduates, these curricula are primarily intended for those who wish to transfer to a four-year school to complete a bachelor’s degree in health, physical education, recreation, or a closely related area. Associate in Arts degree graduates can find entry level employment opportunities in the areas of recreation or sports/fitness club organizations.

Opportunities for bachelor’s degree graduates may include physical education, health education, coaching, recreation, sports medicine, athletic training, physical therapy, sports journalism, sporting goods manufacturing and sales, facility management and other related occupations.

It is essential for the student to work closely with a departmental academic advisor to select courses which will apply to a specific program at the chosen four-year school.
