What You Learn:
In 2008, the National Federation of State High School Associations estimated that of the one million adult coaches in the public schools, only a few have received formal coaching education. The standards set by the National Council for Accreditation of Coaching Education (NCACE) are the basis for the coursework at Carson-Newman.
How You Learn:
Blended Format: When you enroll in a blended cohort, you will take the core courses for the degree in a face-to-face offering. These courses meet one night a week, from 4:45 to 8:45 p.m. You will take the remaining courses for your degree online. These courses will not require face-to-face class meetings; you will log in regularly to complete assignments and participate in online discussions and group activities.
