The Bachelor of Physical and Health Education program is a four-year degree that will prepare students to become community leaders in the promotion of healthy, active, lifestyles. The Physical and Health Education program is characterized by curricular opportunities which are designed to broaden experiences, promote health and wellness through physical activity, enrich awareness, deepen understanding, establish disciplined habits of thought, prepare meaningful careers and, by doing so, help individuals become informed, responsive and productive citizens.

There are several unique components to this program:

  • Community leadership practicums place students within local sports organizations to contribute to their development as sports leaders and to develop ongoing relationships with community based services.
  • Nipissing's natural environment offers opportunities that are an integral part of the curriculum such as walking/hiking trails, ski/snowshoe trails.

Nipissing University is continually ranked with A grades for:

  • Quality of Teaching
  • Campus Atmosphere
  • Class Size (A+)
  • Student Residences
  • Academic Support Services
    (According to Globe and Mail – GlobeCampus)

Don’t take it from us; here’s what students say:

  • "The best thing ... is being able to see your professors outside the classroom and they greet you on a first-name basis. There is nothing better than being able to talk to your professor like they are a friend."
  • "There is a large focus on research at the undergraduate level which does not always happen at larger universities. This gives Nipissing science students a path to further education and graduate schools."
  • "It is in a very scenic, northern setting. There are many trails on campus and a pond and waterfall to relax by to relieve stress and just think."
  • "The residences here are amazing with excellent dons and managers and activities. The residences are new and have amazing laundry, phone and kitchen facilities."
  • "Recreational and athletic programs offer a wide variety, lots of activities to sign up for, appropriate for all levels of skill."
