Physical Education Activity Program

At Texas A&M, we know that going to college is more than classes and studying.  That's where the Physical Education Activity Program (PEAP) comes in! PEAP offers health and fitness activity classes to every Texas A&M student.

Students take a wide range of KINE 199 courses, including aerobic running, archery, badminton, bowling, dancing (country and western, ballroom, or tap) 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.

We have some of the most popular classes at the university and because of student demand, we continue to give more options.

PEAP offers courses to fulfill the science core curriculum for Texas A&M students. In KINE 120 (one credit course), students learn the fundamentals of stress, exercise, nutrition, disease and drug use while participating in a physical activity of their choice. KINE 223 (three credit hours) incorporates several domains of integrative learning.  Here, students will learn fundamentals of health, science, and performance while participating in a physical activity of their choice.

PEAP 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 one of the largest program in terms of credit hours at Texas A&M as well as financially stable. In addition, PEAP has been recognized as one of the best programs of its kind in the nation.

The instructors in the Physical Education Activity Program want every student to develop a lifetime commitment to activity, fitness and wellness.  The goal is every Aggie leaves Texas A&M with an appreciation for physical activity so they can live healthy lives.
