As more professionals seek to improve their marketability in difficult economic times, Wesley College is making graduate studies more accessible and cost efficient to meet the current demands. Expansion of the graduate programs will include a Master of Arts in Sport Leadership (MA-SL) starting in January 2014. This new program is the first completely online offering for the college.
“We recognized a need for an advanced degree in sport leadership and started the process,” said Wesley College Vice President of Academics and Provost Dr. Patricia Dwyer. “This program offers the same quality fulltime professors that undergraduate students interact with on campus, but it is entirely online to cater to the hectic schedules of working professionals.”
In addition to the Sport Leadership master’s, there will also be two certificate programs including Experiential and Adventure Education Leadership and Coaching. Students can complete the MA-SL in 24 months and the two certificates can be completed in approximately a year depending on course offerings. All courses are offered in seven-week blocks year-round.
Career opportunities for these programs include sport marketing, sales, promotion, athletic administration, coaching on the interscholastic and intercollegiate levels, sport industry facility management and many more options.
For those interested in a more traditional setting, Wesley offers master’s degrees in education, nursing, environmental sciences and business administration. The College’s graduate programs are affordable, convenient, and designed for busy people.
