Abstract

 The purpose of this study is to establish the meaning and possibilities of University PE in the bachelor's courses.<br>  Diversification of the standards for establishing university courses has stopped separating subjects in liberal arts education from those in specialized education and each university is now given liberty to decide how to set its courses. The concept of the bachelor's course education emphasizes not on specific areas but on the overall programs in each department as a whole.<br>  At present, many universities still use the following as their PE purposes and hold PE classes; “understanding health and putting it into practice”, “motivation for sports for life” and “improving physical strength”. However, these are the same as in high schools and they are mere repetitions of high school PE. Furthermore, they can be achieved in private fitness clubs and all the conditions for out-sourcing University PE are well established. Therefore, what should be the purposes and contents of University PE?<br>  The conclusions of this study are as follows;<br>  1.  University PE should not be exploratory and prerequisite education, but should be integrated into liberal arts education and even into the specialized education.<br>  2. University PE should not remain inside the framework of “physical education”, but should expand to and link up with different areas which deal with human bodies in various ways and should contribute to the development of wider education.<br>  3. Each member of staff engaged in University PE should be able to exercise his/her speciality in sports science in the PE education.<br>  4. It is necessary for University PE to be established in the entire course of a bachelor's degree including both liberal arts education and specialized education, rather than being placed only in liberal arts education.<br>
