Sport Science Coach Education
100% Online Masters of Science in Sport Science Coach Education Program
The strength and conditioning concentration is 100% online and is designed to prepare students to assume roles in strength and conditioning, and sport coaching. This M.S. program from East Tennessee State University impacts education and research for both sport scientists and coaches. It also contributes to national interest and awareness of the need to academically educate sport scientists and coaches and to target athletic performance rather than participation. This single refocus is expected to lower the incident of sport injuries and increase levels of performance achievement for athletes, thereby supporting sport through research and education.
The master’s program is integrated with the ETSU Center of Excellence for Sport Science and Coach Education (CESSCE). The students have the opportunity to be involved in clinics for coaches, continuing education programs, and activities that permeate the sports community, from the elite athlete to the grade-school child who participates in school or recreational sports. Objectives of the CESSCE include improvement of athlete performance as well as how to better understand the role of sport and sport performance in the health and well being of the nation as a whole and the impact of disability, injury and disease on sport participation and performance. The specialized research possibilities could easily yield findings that would impact quality of life of athletes and the general public.
