CEDARVILLE — The Ohio Board of Regents approved Cedarville University’s new multi-age health and physical education program Jan. 15. The program combines Cedarville’s previous multi-age physical education major and health education minor and takes effect for the 2015-2016 academic year.
“Our hope is that this major will be more attractive to students who want to make themselves more marketable in the teaching field,” said Kathy Freese, associate professor of kinesiology. “We believe this new program will also attract more students to Cedarville University.”
Cedarville initiated the new program more than a year ago to ensure that it is in alignment with Ohio’s standards and requirements. After a review by Cedarville’s curriculum committee, the proposal was sent to the Ohio Board of Regents for final approvals.
