The Physical Education Activity Program (PEAP) offers health and fitness activity classes to every Texas A&M student. Students take a wide range of KINE 199 courses, including adapted physical education, aerobic running, archery, badminton, bowling, weight training, fencing, soccer, golf, gymnastics, handball, mountain biking, Pilates, self-defense, volleyball and yoga. The goal of this program is to help students develop a lifetime appreciation and commitment to physical activity so that they can live healthy lives.
PEAP also offers KINE 198 courses that combine health-related lectures with physical activity. These courses are designed to promote health and well-being. The credit hours, combined with other graduate and undergraduate work and student fees generated from the PEAP division is one the main reasons that the HLKN is the third largest program in terms of credit hours at Texas A&M as well as financially stable. PEAP has been recognized as one of the best programs of its kind in the United States.
In addition to activity electives, PEAP offers University's Core Curriculum science courses. Students can take KINE 120 (1 credit hour) or KINE 223 (3 credit hours). Students will learn the fundamentals of stress, health, science, exercise, nutrition, and performance.
