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.
