HMC students need to complete the three Physical Education (PE) course requirement with the objective of developing skills for a lifelong physical fitness program. While no unit credit is given, satisfactory completion of three semester courses of physical education, including an approved fitness course and two additional elective courses, is required for graduation.
Physical Fitness. Information about physical fitness; testing of physical strengths and weaknesses; development of the skills for a lifelong physical fitness program. Season-long participation in an intercollegiate team sport with CMS Athletic Department staff fulfills this requirement. In the first year students must take at least one course from the CMS PE Department faculty in a designated “fitness oriented” class. This class will help to orient the first-year student as to opportunities through the PE/Athletic department, the PE faculty, and the facility offerings of the CMS PE/Athletic program.
Electives. Semester-long courses in activities such as tennis, badminton, golf, sailing, bicycling, bowling, self-defense, aerobics, running programs, racquetball and weight training with free weights and machines. Season-long participation in an intercollegiate or approved club sports team, fitness training with an associated ROTC program or completion of a physical education course at Pomona College also fulfills a PE elective requirement.
