The author put forward the following opinions: in the “13th Five-Year Plan” period, we can fur-ther boost the rapid development of undergraduate majors in the physical education science category in China, focus on solving the issue of unbalanced and insufficient development of the layout of physical education undergraduate majors in terms of development direction, rationally control the number of majors newly added and major supply quality etc, thus forming a good major development situation to serve the needs of social development objectives and national stra-tegic development in the “13th Five-Year Plan” period. Lastly, the author offered a few suggestions for universities in China to add physical education undergraduate majors in the “13th Five-Year Plan” period.
