Most activity courses are co-ed and all are offered on the S/CR/NC grading system. Completion of the requirement, recommended by the end of the sophomore year, may be earned through physical education classes or participation in varsity athletics and approved club sports.

Can I major in it? Carleton does not offer a major or minor in Physical Education.

Topics covered: Almost any physical activity you can imagine, from Aikido to Yoga, including many forms of dance, martial arts, rock climbing, self-defense, and a full array of sports.
