Plan Description


The Graduate Certificate in College Sport Leadership targets full or part-time graduate students who may not have studied intercollegiate athletic / college sport leadership (specific to higher education) through any formal degree program but wish to develop a deeper understanding of college sport leadership and career options available in the field of intercollegiate athletics. Current graduate students and administrative professionals who already possess an undergraduate degree and have an interest in intercollegiate athletics / college sport leadership, may benefit from this experience. Hours earned for the certificate may be applied to the degree program in Higher Education at the masters or doctoral levels upon formal admission to the program. Hours earned in the masters or doctorate programs in Higher Education may NOT be used toward the certificate.
