Department of Physical Education and Sports


The Department of PG Studies was started in the year 1996 as a part of the Directorate of Physical Education offering a two year post graduate degree (MPES). Later owing to demand for a BPEd degree and in line with the existing degrees in Karnataka state, in 2001 the MPES degree was discontinued and a one year degree (BPEd) and two year degree (MPEd) was offered.

In the year 2009 in order to cater to the inservice teachers and provide them an opportunity to pursue their PG studies the summer vacation course of 4 year/4 semesters was started.

At present the department is engaged in teaching and research and has an one hundred percent placement record in the state and outside. The degrees being offered by the department are BPEd, MPEd and doctoral degrees
