Adapted Physical Education Programs

Welcome.  You made an excellent choice to inquire about Adapted Physical Education (APE) at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.  We encourage you to explore our website to learn about our APE teacher preparation program.  The APE program is housed within the Department of Exercise and Sport Science, in the College of Science and Health.  Our nationally and internationally known APE program deals with all aspects of physical education and physical activity for individuals with a wide array of disabilities.  We hope you become part of this exciting, growing, and rewarding teaching profession.

Organizationally, the APE program is comprised of four interrelated program areas with each contributing to the academic mission of the university and community-based objectives.  The four programs are the undergraduate APE Teaching Minor, Masters Emphasis in APE, Graduate Certification in APE Teaching, and the Center on Disability Health and Adapted Physical Activity Programs.

If you would like more information about any of our programs, please contact us.
