Students in the Physical and Health Education Department at Slippery Rock have the opportunity to travel abroad during their undergraduate experience. Spring break seminar trips have been conducted to such places as London, England; Rome, Italy; Budapest, Hungary; and Ireland (Dublin, Galway, Limerick). These trips have been a focus of the Coaching Minor, but are available to Physical Education majors as well.
Student Teaching Opportunities
Students at Slippery Rock have the unique opportunity to apply to student teach in an out of region program. Students may apply to student teach during the summer months in Raleigh, North Carolina. If they would like to student teach internationally, they may apply to teach for four weeks in Dublin, Ireland (Fall) or Mexico City, Mexico (Spring). Both of these international experiences involve not only student teaching, but also include immersion into the culture by living with host families and touring the city and country where they are visiting. Every student who travels internationally deems the experience transformational.
