About

We're putting you out there

The School of Physical Education and Tourism Management is a vibrant part of IUPUI. Located in downtown Indianapolis, we offer our students boundless opportunities to engage and build practical experience with nationally regarded events, conventions, and venues.

As the oldest unit at IUPUI—and the oldest existing school in the country for preparing physical education teachers—we continue to establish ourselves as an authority on event tourism, wellness, and sports management in the community and beyond.

Degrees, minors, and certificates

Our Department of Kinesiology offers three undergraduate academic tracks and a master's degree.

Our Department of Tourism, Conventions, and Event Management offers two undergraduate tracks, a master's degree in event tourism, and an executive education program in sports event tourism.

More than a dozen minors and certificates allow our students to customize their education based on specific career interests.

We have a rich history

Our story goes back 150 years, making us the oldest unit at IUPUI and the oldest existing school in the country for preparing physical education teachers.

We've seen four cities, two name changes, and a few key program changes that have made our school the established institution it is today.
