Believe it or not, it is now possible to earn certified online physical education teaching degrees at Mumbai University on the Ratnagiri Campus. Yes, that means you can learn how to become a “gym” teacher while studying in India. Gym teachers instruct students about a lot more than just sports and exercise, though.

Furthermore, in several states in India, physical education teachers are required to provide classes in health education. Most importantly, physical education (P.E.) teachers inspire students to stay fit and develop good health and fitness habits.
To become a physical education teacher, you need at least a four year degree. Typically, people who want to become P.E. teachers pursue a Bachelor of Science in Education (BSE) degree in physical education. Coursework in a physical education degree program may include team sports, human development, theories of sport pedagogy, and physical education theory. You are also required to obtain a teaching certificate for the grades you would like to teach in your state. A BSE program will include at least one semester of student teaching as well as preparation for standardized education tests. In some school districts, new P.E. teachers are also required to obtain a Master’s of Art in Education after starting work.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (in the US), job opportunities for teachers over the next 10 years range from good to excellent, so there’s no better time than now to pursue the education you need to become a P.E. teacher. Whether you’re an aspiring P.E. teacher or you’re already working in the field, certified online physical education teaching degrees will enable you to earn the education and credentials required to achieve your career goals. Several reputable online universities offer P.E. degree programs at the bachelor’s and master’s levels so you pursue your degree from the comfort and convenience of your own home.
