MA in Coaching (online)

In the 21st Century, coaches are expected to be responsible for more than X's and O's. At any competitive level, a coach must be knowledgeable about coaching styles and behaviors, proper training methods, successful teaching techniques, relevant legal issues, budgeting, fundraising, and motivating athletes.

Pursuing an advanced degree is one effective avenue to enhance a coach's leadership skills and knowledge while increasing marketability in a highly competitive field.

The online MA in Coaching at Adams State University is a 36-credit program that offers a wide range of courses and practical experiences in order to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to become a more highly qualified coach. All courses are offered online which allows for greater flexibility and optimum convenience for students who hold full-time careers or cannot relocate.

Students can complete the program in two years which includes all coursework. The MA in Coaching at Adams State is the least expensive of any other fully online master's degree in the US.
