FACULTY Professor: Soule Associate Professors: Henry, Holmquist, Neal, B. Norman, Sarver Assistant Professor: Orr OBJECTIVES The objectives of the physical education program are: (1) to teach the fundamental sports skills for present and future years; (2) to teach the necessity for the techniques of a lifetime of physical fitness; (3) to pro­ vide wholesome recreational activities and intramural sports; (4) to conduct a program of intercollegiate athletics; (5) to provide Christian perspectives on physical fitness, recreation and athletics; and (6) to provide a major with emphases in teaching and sports physiology and a minor in physical educa­ tion or a minor with a coaching emphasis. Each student under 21 years of age at time of entrance to Biola is required to com­ plete four semesters of physical education to be eligible for graduation (students turn­ ing 21 during their first semester of enroll­ ment are exempt). No activity may be taken more than once for general education purposes, however, an intermediate or advanced class may be taken in the same skill. Students may select one unit of a recreation skill to meet the gen­ eral education requirement. (See physical education skills and techniques course.) Credit for varsity sports may be substituted for two regularly scheduled physical educa­ tion classes. In addition to the four semesters of physical education activities re­ quired for general education, the student may complete four more semesters for cred­ it (a maximum of eight) for graduation. Students studying for the multiple sub­ ject teaching credential but not selecting physical education as a minor area of con­ centration, should select PE. 201 and three other physical education activity classes to fulfill the general education requirement. DEGREE PROGRAM A BACHELOROF SCIENCE DEGREE IN P HYSICAL EDUCATION is offered upon completion of the university baccaluareate requirements and one of the following major emphases.
