Physical Activity and Wellness Program (PAWP)

Part of the School of Kinesiology

Our Physical Activity and Wellness Program (PAWP) combines the study of the basic principles of wellness with participation in a broad range of physical activities. Courses include Active Auburn, Cross Fit, Bowling, Golf, Scuba, Kayaking, Taekwondo, and Fishing, to name a few.

If you enjoy exercise and health, you can take 8 semester hours to complete the program. While completion of this program is not indicated on transcripts or diplomas, you can request a certificate upon completion of the program. The program is available to all on campus undergraduate students and requires the following courses:

  • KINE 1100: Wellness (2 hours)
  • Three PHED courses (6 hours)
  • Optional courses must be from 3 different categories (e.g. fitness, team sports, aquatics)

Spaces in these courses are limited and they will fill quickly. Please note:

  • You can add yourself to PHED courses that have openings during the first week of class.
  • After the first week of class, no one can be added to a PHED class, even if there are openings.
  • A PHED instructor does not have the authority to add students.
