Through multi-day workshops, guided projects and other customized learning experiences, you will choose 19 credits of specialization component coursework that are taken directly through either Project Adventure or High 5. The master’s core courses and capstone completed directly through PSU are delivered online.
The Athletic Administration concentration is for students seeking career opportunities within the professional and collegiate sport industry. Occupational paths for athletic administration graduates include sport facility and arena management; professional sport organizations; managerial positions at sporting goods companies; management of resorts, private clubs, and camps; and managerial jobs in governmental agencies and sport marketing organizations.

This distance learning program is designed for students who have a physical education background, and does not require students to complete coursework on the Plymouth, NH campus.

The program is designed to meet the interests and needs of students coming from a variety of undergraduate backgrounds, including business management. Individual coursework and electives are determined on the basis of the candidate’s educational experience, vocational training, needs, and interests.
Prior college-level coursework or the equivalent in fitness activities, adventure skills, motor learning and development, dual and team sports, kiniesiology, human anatomy and physiology, first aid, CPR, and personal wellness may be required to pursue this degree.
