About the Program

The Institute of Human Kinetics started offering the Bachelor of Secondary Education major in Physical Education, Health and Music (PEHM) in 2002 with thirteen students as the first batch. In 2009, IHK revised its offering in accordance with CHED CMO No. 23 series 2004 into the Bachelor in Secondary Education major in Music, Arts, Physical Education and Health (BSEd-MAPEH).
