A Master of Science in Coaching can help students pursue a number of careers – from coaching to public health and wellness positions like:

As long as there are sports, there will be a need for professionals who put the athletes first. An online master’s degree in coaching can open up opportunities in amateur, college and professional sports. Job openings for coaches and scouts are projected to grow 13 percent by 2026 with a median salary of $31,460.

Health Educator2
There’s a growing need for educators who can serve the health and wellness needs of America’s community. In fact, jobs for health educators are expected to grow 13 percent over the next several years. Currently, the median annual salary for these public service health professionals is $44,390.

Or you could pursue a career outside of coaching or public health services altogether. The insights you’ll gain will help you prepare for any job that requires critical thinking and people skills as well as a professional demeanor – from business to customer service to office work.
