Program Description:

The Department of Kinesiology and the Institute for the Study of Youth Sports (ISYS) at Michigan State University now offers two different approaches to online graduate-level study in coaching education. Go to our website to learn more. Our original certificate program consists of three 3-semester hour courses that address legal, administrative, psychological, sociological, and physical issues as they relate to the coaching of amateur athletes. After successful completion of all three courses, a Certificate of Completion will be awarded. These courses may be transferable to other graduate degree programs. In the second option, the sports leadership and coaching courses can be used as a minor for the online Masters of Arts in Education offered by the College of Education. This is an excellent opportunity for the teacher-coach looking to obtain a masters degree and also working on their coach training. We offer 4 courses, 3 of which can be assembled as a Concentration Area. Our instructors are leaders in the field of sport science and coaching education. Courses available are: Kin 854: Sport Law for Coaches and Administrators (Taught by Rick Atkinson, Assistant Director of Athletics at MSU) Kin 855: Psychosocial Bases of Coaching (Taught by Dr. Marty Ewing of MSU) Kin 856: Physical Bases of Coaching (Taught by Dr. Scott Riewald, United States Olympic Committee Senior Sport Technologist) Kin 857: Promoting Positive Youth Development (Taught by Dr. Dan Gould of MSU)
