The State of Georgia will now have its first 100 percent online sport-based master’s degree program at a private institution, and its home base is in Waleska at Reinhardt University. This master’s degree that can be completed in only one year.

The first semester of Reinhardt’s Master of Science in Sport Administration and Leadership will begin in August 2019 and will consist of 30 credit hours in 12 months.

“We see a need for a fully sport-based online master’s program in the State of Georgia,” said Dr. Joe Mullins, sport studies and physical education program coordinator. “The program will provide advanced skills for sports professionals looking to enter leadership or administration positions in all aspects of the sports industry.”

As Georgia’s first fully online master’s degree related to sports offered at a private institution, students will benefit from a unique opportunity: earning their graduate degree with the flexibility of completing courses online while having the ability to work closely with faculty.

The program consists of eight, three-credit courses online and a six-credit hour professional capstone experience, in which student may choose to complete a 180-hour internship or a master’s project demonstrating excellence in the field.

Program outcomes include exhibiting leadership behaviors consistent with ethical sport administrators and applying communications and technology competencies required of sport administrators. Graduates from this program will also be able to analyze current and historical issues impacting sports administrators and integrate solutions to develop positive organizational cultures. Additionally, they will be able to comprehend the broader role of sport in society.
