Xavier launches first online-only degree

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Xavier University is launching their first online only degree program.

The university is now offering a Master of Education in Coaching and Athlete Development degree, and is set to begin January of 2013.  Students will need to complete thirty-three credit hours online and only two required, three-hour residencies. Students involved will include coaches of all backgrounds, from community-based coaches to college coaches.

The new online degree is designed in agreement with the National Association for Sport & Physical Education (NASPE) and the National Council for the Accreditation of Coaching Education (NCACE) program's National Standards for Sport Coaches (NSSC). The NCACE is the accrediting body for coaching education programs at colleges and universities, in community-based sport, and in academic sport.

The program's focus will be on coaches character development and long-term athlete development, and will include courses in sport ethics, character and moral development, exercise physiology and biomechanics, risk management, and long-term athlete development. 

"This new Master's program is a groundbreaking venture in a discipline people believe they understand," said Mark Meyers, PhD, dean of Xavier's College of Social Sciences, Health, & Education. "This program deals with more than Xs and Os. Ours focuses on the comprehensive development of athletes at all levels. Directly connecting to Xavier's mission as a Jesuit Catholic institution, participants will gain skills to facilitate the development of athletes both on and off the field, to develop men and women for and with others, with interest in serving society. The program will be taught mostly online with a unique residency program that allows each participant to garner the most from the program while still being able to serve the individual needs of the chosen sport."

For those interested, there will be an open house on Tuesday, Oct. 16 from at 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. at the Schiff Conference Center in the Cintas Center.  Open house attendees must register at https://admit.xavier.edu/register/InfoSession
