At Texas A&M, we know that going to college is more than classes and studying. That's where PEAP comes in!
The Physical Education Activity Program offers health and fitness activity classes to every Texas A&M student as part of the university core curriculum. Students take a wide range of KINE 199 courses including adapted physical education, aerobic running, archery, badminton, bowling, weight training, fencing, soccer, golf, gymnastics, handball, mountain biking, pilates, self-defense, volleyball and yoga. The goal of this program is to help students develop a lifetime appreciation and commitment to physical activity so that they can live healthy lives.
The PEAP division also offers KINE 198 courses that combine health-related lectures with physical activity. These courses are designed to promote health and well-being. The credit hours, combined with other graduate and undergraduate work, and student fees generated from the PEAP division is one the main reasons that the Department of Health and Kinesiology is the third largest program in terms of credit hours at Texas A&M as well as financially stable. The Physical Education Activity Program has been recognized as one of the best programs of its kind in the United States.
