The department of Physical Health and Sports Education was established under the Faculty of Social Sciences in 1990 with the aim to producing able and qualified teachers in the growing discipline of physical education and sports. These teachers have been employed cent percent in the educational institutions starting from school to higher education. Recently, physical education has emerged as an important academic discipline imparting various courses of teacher education that include Bachelor in Physical Education (B.P.Ed.), Master in Physical Education (M.P.Ed.) and research in Physical Education and Sports Sciences. All the above courses are being run in the department to cater to the need of trained leadership in physical education and sports.
The department has one Professor, Five Readers and One Lecturer besides supporting non-teaching and technical staff. The faculty members are also actively engaged in guiding research and undertaking project works mainly assigned by the U.G.C.. Organizing Conferences, Seminars/ Workshops and extramural lectures of eminent scholars have remained a regular feature of the department. A good number of Books have been written by the faculty members besides contributing articles and research papers in reputed National and International Journals.
As the above mentioned courses are specially designed for producing physical education and sports teachers, the students with proficiency in games/sports are admitted to these courses and hence almost every one represents the University in Intervarsity and a few in National Championships too. Since human health, fitness and sports are core dimensions, the department has ample avenues to grow further.
