The De Anza College Athletics Department offers 10 women's and 9 men's sports. For more information, visit the Athletics Department web site.
The Physical Education department offers activity classes in several different areas. To see the offerings under each area, click on the area name. Most sections meet 2 hours a week. There are some activities that are scheduled to meet 3 hours a week. These sections are designated with an X after the course number (i.e. P E 004 Strength Development is 2 hours a week, P E 004X is three hours a week). Intercollegiate classes are for Athletic teams in their competitive season. Techniques courses are for Athletics teams out of season, but are open to those students whose skill level is advanced. Dance courses are listed under the Creative Arts Division.
