Tuesday/Thursday PE Program

For the past twenty-nine years, children from the Boston Public Schools have been bused to the athletic facilities at Boston University. The program, known as the Tuesday/Thursday Physical Education Program, is internationally known because of the unique teaching-learning environment. That the children are brought to a university laboratory setting and that the teachers are undergraduate and graduate students are just two reasons which make the program distinctive. Physical education certification (licensure) students have been teaching physical activities to children from the Gardner and the Hamilton Public Schools since the first years of implementation of the Tuesday/Thursday Program (T/R PE Program) in the early 1970s.

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students at the School of Education benefit from the community feel of a small school along with the resources of a large university. Our students are in the field in both urban and suburban schools as early as their first year at SED.

Graduate Students

Talented graduate students from around the world prepare to become teachers, counselors, administrators, and more in as little as one year at the School of Education. Our students engage in diverse aspects of education both in the classroom and the field.
