OBR Approves New Cedarville Program

by Will Duncan, Public Relations Writer

The Ohio Board of Regents approved Cedarville University’s new multi-age health and physical education program on January 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.
 
Located in southwest Ohio, Cedarville University is an accredited, Christ-centered, Baptist institution with an enrollment of 3,620 undergraduate, graduate and online students in more than 100 areas of study. Founded in 1887, Cedarville is recognized nationally for its authentic Christian community, rigorous academic programs, strong graduation and retention rates, accredited professional and health science offerings and leading student satisfaction ratings.
