Bachelor Of Physical Education (BPE)

The Bachelor of Physical Education (BPE) is a four-year degree course, which prepares the student to become a specialist in the areas of sports, dance, recreation, and physical fitness. This program also trains the students to be proficient in teaching physical education, sports coaching and officiating, and in administering, conducting and supervising sports, dance, and recreational programs. The graduates of this curriculum will also be able to teach music as well as health education in both the elementary and secondary levels.



 The College of Physical Education, Sports, Culture, Arts and Recreation (PESCAR) started as the Sports, Amateur Athletics, and Cultural Arts Center (SAACAC) in 1987, with Dr. Ramon C. Cabag as its first office head.

 Initially, the Center was entrusted with servicing physical education classes of the University and supervising and administering the organization, training, and participation of the University athletes in the then newly-formed State Colleges and Universities Amateur Athletic Association (SCUAAA) of which West Visayas State University is a member school. To meet the growing nature of the Center’s commitment to both the University and some external agencies, the SAACAC was rechristined PESCAR. Now embracing the performing arts, PESCAR had for its new director, Dr. Henry J. Andora, and an office venue in one of the receiving rooms at the WVSU Cultural Center.
