A course is a short program that allows students to study a specific topic. Unlike degree programs, courses are meant to be completed quickly so students can acquire skills needed for their careers.

What is an online course in sport? This type of course can vary greatly in content. A sport course may cover topics related to playing, coaching and managing sports. Students may learn about the rules of different sports, training methods, coaching techniques and business management of a sports team. Courses may also cover leadership methods, ethics, anatomy, physiology, psychology and coaching methodology. Other topics that may be included in the curriculum of a course include sports nutrition, medicine, first aid, marketing, personnel management and fundraising.

Depending on the type of sport course a student takes, he or she may gain skills in management and leadership that are applicable in almost any position. Students may also gain skills in coaching and training that could enable them to qualify for more hands-on positions in the sports industry.

Cost estimates for sport courses are best obtained from each school. Costs vary due to the differences in tuition and program structures.

Because sport courses vary so greatly in content and focus, students who complete a course may be prepared for a wide range of careers. Students may become coaches, personal trainers, agents, representatives, customer service agents or managers in the sports industry. Other possible careers include sales executive, marketing executive and promotions manager. Some students may wish to start their own business, such as a health club or gym, or may want to start amateur sports teams. There is also the option to continue into a degree program in a sports-related subject.

A course in sport may allow you to take your love of sports and put it to practical use. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
