**It is strongly suggested that students seeking a Physical Education (P. E.) Licensure prepare themselves to teach in one additional discipline.  The Mississippi Department of Education requires 21 semester hours of prefix-specific courses with a grade of "C" or better.  Some of the common supplemental endorsement areas are English, Communication, Social Studies, Mathematics, and General Science.

It is strongly recommended that students complete the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core) (formerly Praxis I) examination prior to transferring (if required).
