The Online Master of Science in Kinesiology- Coaching program (non-licensure) is designed to promote individual change within the professional practice of professionals enrolled in the program. The philosophical foundation of the master’s degree is to extend the students’ prior knowledge and experiences including an understanding of philosophy and ethics, safety and injury prevention, physical conditioning, growth and development, teaching and communication, sport skills and tactics, organization and administration, and evaluation.
Students will be able to demonstrate competencies outlined by the National Standards for Sport Coaches as well as the competencies that have been established for the graduate programs at Southern Arkansas University. The program will be delivered online to enable working professionals greater flexibility in completing their advanced educational studies. The online format enables working professionals to complete their master’s degree in a timelier manner. Many professionals working and/or living in communities within our region, due to restraints of time and distance, are unable to attend evening courses during the school year. The online environment will allow more educators/coaches greater access to graduate education.
