Greetings from the Director

Watch a video message from the Director


Thank you for expressing interest in the Master of Arts in Sport Coaching at the University of Denver. The Sport Coaching program is housed in the Graduate School of Professional Psychology (GSPP), which has a rich history of innovative professional preparation. Psychologists and sport psychologists were pioneers to study coach effectiveness and coach education. In recent years, coach education at a University setting has become more popular, and more important to produce quality coaches. The Sport Coaching program is the only Master’s level degree program in coaching offered in a school of psychology in the country. Our program builds upon the innovative preparation of the GSPP and the successful Master of Arts in Sport & Performance Psychology, but diverges in important ways.

The Sport Coaching curriculum was built from the ground up with student success and coach success in mind. From idea to implementation, nearly two years went into planning and designing the curriculum, collaborating with leading experts in teaching, learning and student success, hiring quality instructors with experience in sport and coaching settings, and crafting our courses. Students may complete all of the degree requirements fully online. Our program earned the distinction of achieving the National Strength and Conditioning Association's Education Recognition Program (ERP) as an Applied Graduate Studies Program.

We are committed to the personal and professional growth of our students and coaches in the online classroom, and on the field, court, rink, pitch, mat, pool, range and everywhere else sport is played! Please contact me to discuss our program and your potential fit and application. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,

Coach Gearity
