Continue your sports education with high level professional studies!
In addition to its world renowned degree programs, the Academy’s Center for Professional Studies and Continuing Education has developed an extensive array of post-secondary, non-degree courses and programs to meet the professional development needs, on the latest practices in the profession, for those individuals working in the sports industry. The Academy’s Continuing Education programs have also helped individuals all over the world to get educational credentials to enable them to secure employment in the sports health and fitness industry.
The Academy’s Continuing Education courses are largely drawn from the institution’s degree programs and, as such, have well developed course objectives and desired student learning outcomes (SLOs). Students enrolling online in these Continuing Education courses enjoy the same flexibility and convenience as the Academy’s degree-seeking students, in terms of rolling registration and asynchronous course delivery. This approach affords the students the opportunity of studying when they are ready – on their schedule, not the institution’s.
Continuing Education programs are designed to offer a hierarchical approach to the students’ professional development. Students may enroll in individual courses, combine three courses into a sport certification; six courses into a sport certification; or ten courses, plus an internship into a sport diploma. Students have the option of satisfying one level of study and using this work to move up to the next level in the educational hierarchy.
