Whether you’re a graduate student, a coach, or active in a youth sports program, consider this game plan: a graduate athletic coaching education certificate from a university with a world-class, master’s in athletic coaching education.

Ball State’s 12-credit graduate certificate is 100 percent online and is taught by the same faculty who teach the master’s in coaching education.

Who Should Consider This Certificate?

If you’re a graduate student pursuing degrees in sport administration, sport performance, or sport and exercise psychology, the certificate is a great way to expand your skill set in the fraction of the time and tuition required for adding an additional graduate degree.

Or, if you’re a full-time professional who plans to coach part time, or volunteer as a weekend warrior, but would like a stand-alone credential to recognize your course work, this certificate prepares you to be confident in your abilities to work with athletes no matter what level. 

If you don’t have time or money for a full master’s degree, but like the idea of university courses taught by professors who have coaches on national and international stages of sport, this certificate deserves your full consideration.

Master’s Degree

All the courses you take in the graduate certificate can apply to our fully online, no-residency, world-class master’s in athletic coaching education. You can finish this graduate degree in five semesters.
