Physical Education

Borders are virtually meaningless in this early 21st century global economy. As a future graduate with a Physical Education major or minor degree, you will be confronting global issues and will work in internationally-operated companies. "Wake up and face the earth!" T. Friedman advised us in his bestseller ‘The World is Flat’.

Physical Education

South Africa

An international experience will provide you not only with essential skills to work effectively in industry, education, or the public sector but will touch and change all the facets of your life by the experience of living in another culture, will strengthen your character, and will broaden your mind.

Students interested in combining their study abroad experience with an internship, or those looking to focus solely on an internship, have many options. Customized internships are available in a few locations through GVSU internships, as well as other programs such as ELAP and World Endeavors
