As a coach and teacher who is constantly busy, the LHU MS Sport Science Program is set up perfectly for me because I can do the class work on my own time. I was initially nervous about the online format because I ask a lot of questions, but I found that I learned a lot more by doing assignments on my own. Also, the format of the class gives me chances to contact teachers and peers frequently which helps a lot. With the hope of becoming an Athletic Director down the road, I believe that the material being taught in this program will ultimately help me achieve my goal. Although I only took 2 courses so far, I know that I made the right choice by choosing LHU for achieve my Master's degree.

The LHU MS Sports Science Program is great. The work itself is relatively recent to today's issues, problems and concerns which makes it very interested to learn about. For the total work load to be online, the professors really make sure you understand the assignments. I love the fact that I don't have to sit in a classroom yet have the same access to professors if I have any questions. I'm able to work full time while getting my masters which enables me to gain more work experience to go along which furthering my education. I would recommend this program to anyone looking to capitalize on both work and education.
