Physical Education

Although we have no physical education requirement at Mills, our classes are so popular that over half of our students enroll in a PE activity course each semester. We offer over 30 activity courses for academic credit each semester. Some of our course offerings include massage, equitation, capoeira, personal defense, cardio-kickboxing, fitness swimming, fencing, sailing, Pan-African dance aerobics, water exercise, yoga, lifeguard training, golf, and introduction to sports medicine. Our instructors are highly qualified, engaged in their courses, and are always happy to see both beginning and experienced participants. PE courses like hiking and sailing offer students the chance to experience some of the beautiful East Bay parks in the Bay Area, as well as an opportunity to get off campus for some sunshine and stress relief.
