Programme Aims and Objectives

To be physically active is an integral and important part of healthy living. With the increasing awareness and need for quality and active lifestyles, the numbers of public and private sport facilities, fitness clubs, and residential clubhouses have increased substantially over the years. There is a high demand for professional management of sports and recreation programmes and facilities as well as delivery of quality physical education in school and community environments. With the continual demand for trained graduates in the field of physical education, sport, and recreation management, the "Physical Education and Recreation Management" (PERM) programme was established in 1992. The overall aim of the PERM is to provide students with sufficient depth and breadth of knowledge, skills, and practical experience (internship) in the discipline of physical education and recreation management. Furthermore, under the ethos of "whole person education" of the University, our students will also receive a strong liberal arts education such that they can embark on a variety of careers.

Specifically, the objectives of the PERM are to enable students to:

The PERM programme covers sport science theory and knowledge and sport skill practical courses that are essential for a physical education teacher trainee as well as for a sport coach. For those students who opt for the "Teaching Physical Education in Schools" career track, they need to enroll for an additional year of "Teacher Certificate" programme. By fulfilling the teacher training requirement, graduates can then be eligible to apply for the "Registered Physical Education Teacher" status.
