Bachelor of Sports Coaching & Administration
It educates students in modern coaching and conditioning techniques, as well as in the management of the political, legislative, and administrative complexities increasingly encountered in the sports sector.
The course offers a unique mix of human movement and coaching studies, along with a variety of generic professional skills.
More than being simply knowledge-based, the course incorporates a strong problem-solving focus. The result is a flexible foundation upon which students build the key competencies appropriate to highly successful sports coaches and administrators.
The course program is divided into six semesters, each of 12 weeks duration. Study involves approximately 16 contact hours a week (excluding examination and study weeks).
The Associate Degree serves as an exit point from the degree after two years – students graduate with an Associate Degree in Sports Coaching & Administration.
