Program Overview

Central Washington University’s (CWU) College of Education Athletic Administration Master’s Program encompasses knowledgeable professors who have considerable experience in interscholastic and intercollegiate athletics as athletic directors, advisors, mentors, and coaches. Tenure track faculty, experienced in teaching, are aware of the need for the practical application of skills, and the knowledge and understanding necessary for successful leadership in athletics. The opportunity for a degree in athletic administration comes at a time when the need for competent and knowledgeable athletic administrators is on the rise.

In today’s fast-paced world of athletic administration, beginning athletic directors have little time to engage in “on-the-job” training. New athletic directors must be ready to set program direction, establish open communication and professional relationships, apply problem-solving strategies, and address budgetary and other program issues, all while managing an efficient and people-friendly program. This master’s program prepares new and practicing athletic directors to be capable leaders and efficient managers who work efficiently and effectively.
