The Physical Education Department offers a variety of activities in the areas of aquatics, fitness, martial arts, individual and dual “lifetime” sports, team sports, and outdoor education. Most of the activities are designed for the beginner or intermediate level. However, advanced courses are offered at selected times. The courses are designed to develop and/or improve the student’s fundamental skills and to help realize his or her potential. Activity that promotes one’s fitness level is emphasized. A major goal is to provide a positive, enjoyable experience for students. It is our hope that these activities will contribute to the development of an active, healthy lifestyle.

The majority of the activities are offered in ten time preferences. However, there are early morning conditioning activities, Friday-only classes at Baker Athletics Complex, and special courses that utilize off-campus facilities during weekends. A description of the scheduled activities for each time preference is included in the Department of Physical Education and Intercollegiate Athletics’ website.

A list of the activities for the term is included in the Directory of Classes and on the website. Students may select physical education courses during on-line registration. Unless otherwise indicated, the activities are scheduled on a quarterly basis with each quarter lasting approximately seven weeks. Students may register for only one section of physical education each term.

Physical Education Requirement

Successful completion of two Physical Education Activities is a Columbia College requirement that students are advised to complete by the end of the first year. Students may elect to take one or two additional terms of Physical Education Activities for credit. Students receive 1 point of academic credit for each completed term of physical education for a possible total of 4 points.

For more information on this requirement, please visit the Core Curriculum—Physical Education Requirement section of the bulletin.

Medical Conditions

Students who request to have their physical education activities limited or waived because of a medical condition should contact Abbey Lade, chair of Physical Education. In some situations, students may require an evaluation by a clinician at Health Services at Columbia in order to receive a waiver. In consultation with Abbey Lade, students may be instructed to contact Dr. Brenda Aiken, medical director of Columbia Health Programs, who facilitates these evaluations.

Grading

The grading in all physical education courses is Pass/Fail. Students who fulfill the attendance and participation requirement receive a Pass. Those who miss more than the permissible number of classes and who do not drop the course by the official drop deadline receive a W (Withdrawal). Those who anticipate attendance problems should contact their instructors or the director of undergraduate studies.

Swim Test

Passing Physical Education C1001-C1002 is a requirement for the degree. All students are also required to pass a swimming test or take beginning swimming for one term to fulfill the swimming requirement. A waiver of the swimming test requirement may be granted if a student has a disability certified by a medical authority that precludes swimming. Students may also request waivers and accommodations on the grounds of religious observance or gender identity/expression. All requests for waivers and accommodations are reviewed by Abbey Lade, Director of Physical Education.

Locker and Towel Service

Students have access to a lock/towel service ($18 fee) and, with the exception of tennis, equipment for the activities is supplied by the Physical Education Department.

The Columbia and Barnard Physical Education Exchange Program

The Columbia and Barnard Physical Education Departments have an exchange program. Space is reserved for Columbia College and Engineering students in selected Barnard physical education courses. A list of the Barnard courses offered through the exchange program is available in the Columbia Physical Education Office and the Barnard Physical Education Office, 200 Barnard Annex.

For Columbia College students, one point of the Physical Education requirement can be fulfilled with a Barnard Physical Education course or a Barnard Dance technique course.

Intercollegiate Athletics

Students who are participating on an intercollegiate team should register for the appropriate team section of PHED UN1005 Intercollegiate Athletics. Intercollegiate athletes are responsible for taking the swimming test. Student athletes who cannot pass the test should take beginning swimming at the first possible opportunity.

Student athletes who register correctly and participate on a team receive a Pass; those who drop off a team in midterm and still wish to receive academic credit must notify the Physical Education Office and be placed in an activity to complete the attendance requirement. Otherwise, the student must officially drop Intercollegiate Athletics or they receive a mark of W (Withdrawal).
