The Department of BPE was established in the year 1990. At its inception, the department ran a UG programme in Sport Sciences, which was later discontinued. In the year 1995 the Department started a 3 year professional course in Physical Education called BPE. The 3 year BPE programme was later converted into 4 year BPE (Integrated) programme. The department is the only department among the arts and science colleges in Kerala to offer an undergraduate Physical Education Teachers’ training programme. Over the years, the Dept. of BPE has acquired the reputation of being one of the best in training undergraduate Physical Education teachers in the country. The 4 year programme offers specialisations in 6 different sports. There is a rigorous teaching practice programme including real time practice teaching in schools. Apart from this, the department also regularly conducts leadership training camps for the students to inculcate the culture of outdoor education. The Department regularly conducts literary and cultural programmes in order to foster the literary and artistic aptitudes of the students. In the final year of the programme, students get a chance to take an internship, which they can choose to do in a school or in an organisation with sport and exercise setting. The programme not only trains to bring out quality physical education teachers, but also sport and exercise professionals. The programme also provides a very good foundation for higher sport science programmes. Over the years the department has produced a good number Physical Education teachers who serve not only in Kerala and other states in India, but also overseas. Apart from producing quality Physical Education teachers and sport and exercise personnel, the department has also produced many quality sportsmen who won several laurels for the college, university, state and the country.
