The Master Science in Sport Coaching Leadership program is an online master's program in the School of Education. The MS degree will prepare students in the areas of coaching theory, development of a coaching philosophy, understanding of the needs of athletes, recruitment, compliance, and program planning. The program will also expose students to comparative, global coaching models and allows for hands-on opportunities in the form of three practicums. The goal of the program is to prepare students for coaching careers in sport-based youth development in scholastic, collegiate, club, or professional coaching environments. Students may elect a sport-specific concentration or create a concentration best suited to their individual career goals. Academic advisors will work closely with each student to determine the best academic plan.
