The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) marketable skills initiative is part of the state’s 60x30TX plan and was designed to help students articulate their skills to employers.  Marketable skills are those skills valued by employers and/or graduate programs that can be applied in a variety of work or education settings and may include interpersonal, cognitive, and applied skill areas.

The BS with a Double Major in Education and in Kinesiology is designed to provide graduates with the following marketable skills:

  • Content and pedagogical knowledge to teach physical education in Pre K-12 schools.
  • Ability to promote physical activity beyond the physical education setting.
  • Knowledge of Skill Themes, Sport Education, and Fitness Education instructional models.
  • Student-centered physical education teachers.
  • Culturally responsive and inclusive.
  • Appropriate professional and ethical teacher behaviors.
  • Fully certified to teach physical education in PK-12 schools.
