Being an athlete requires a lot of things, but strength and endurance are likely on the top of that list. The strength and conditioning graduate concentration will prepare you to work with athletes as a strength and conditioning coach in secondary schools, collegiate and professional programs, and private settings. Develop the skills and knowledge required to design physiologically sound programs that enhance athletic performance, as well as the coaching skills needed to implement the programs. To ensure you’re ready to hit the ground running when you graduate, you’ll complete multiple fieldwork experiences and study from a coursework that is relevant, practical, and research based.

The strength and conditioning concentration is recognized by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Education Recognition Program. The NSCA recognizes regionally accredited academic institutions for their educational programs that have met, and continue to meet, educational guidelines recommended by the association.
