Physical education classes got off to a running start during the fall semester [1976], the first time they were taught at UTSA. The university is now offering a bachelor of science degree in health and physical education.

In addition to physical fitness classes, UTSA offers tennis, badminton, basketball, volleyball, tumbling, and folk and square dance. Several lecture classes, including drug education and physical growth and development, are also offered. All PE classes are coed.
