Most people are acutely aware of the value of keeping physically fit and eating the right foods. As our changing work habits create more leisure time, organized recreational activities become more important. Whether it is teaching young people how to get in shape and remain physically fit for the rest of their lives, or working in the recreational field, planning organizing and directing activities to help people enjoy the free time they have recreation and physical education are fields with expanding opportunities. These are designed as transfer programs. Students can complete the first two years at Cowley College, and then transfer to a four-year college or university to finish a bachelor’s degree. General education courses taken while at Cowley College will transfer to most state universities in Kansas and other states.
