Coaches across the country have one question in common: How can I get a step up on the competition?
The answer can be found in Ball State University’s online graduate program in athletic coaching education. More than a weekend workshop or a noncredit certificate program offering a handful of basic courses, this is a master for arts degree in physical education with a coaching specialization.
Taught by faculty who perform on national and international stages of coaching and who have coached Olympians and NCAA champion athletes, Ball State’s program is a world-class master’s degree.
But it’s do-able because the program is fully online with absolutely no residency requirement. That means you can earn the degree without leaving your coaching position, and you can complete an internship in your workplace.
Since you’ll be taking courses in organization and administration, sport safety and injury prevention, and teaching and motivation, you can take what you learn to practice the next day.
Take note also that coaching salaries are seeing a dramatic rise, particularly at the college level, where compensation for coaches in certain sports has escalated in recent years.
This program is offered completely online.
