The athletic leadership graduate certificate affords students the opportunity to establish a foundation of knowledge in the areas of leadership, ethics, administrative responsibility and sport psychology. The certificate program requires the completion of the following four courses:
AL 8490 Leadership Development in Intercollegiate Athletic Programs (3 credit hours)
AL 8610 Administration and Organization of Intercollegiate Athletic Programs
AL 8620 Psychological Issues in Intercollegiate Athletics
AL 8630 Ethical Issues in Intercollegiate Athletics
This program meets the needs of students who are also working professionals. All courses are offered in an online format and are designed around the time constraints and responsibilities of the intercollegiate coaching community. If you are accepted into the certificate program, you will progress through the program by enrolling in one course during the fall and spring semesters, and two courses taken simultaneously over the summer semester. Throughout this process, students will interact with instructors and students electronically in both synchronous (at the same time) and asynchronous (at different times) formats.
While the certificate program provides a great deal of flexibility to meet the need of the coaching profession, students are responsible for allocating sufficient time in their schedules to access course material, review lectures, study content materials and complete assignments.
