DWU adds graduate certificate in Athletic and Activities Administration to graduate program offerings

Dakota Wesleyan University is launching a new graduate certificate in Athletic and Activities Administration as part of its graduate-level program offerings.

The program will prepare students to develop specific skill sets for management of entertainment venues, sports teams, or large events in a variety of settings like high schools, colleges, and professional organizations.

The certificate consists of 18 graduate credits.  Students who enroll in the program can earn the certificate as a stand-alone award or can pair it with a Master of Business Administration or Master of Arts in Education degree.

The program, which is delivered 100% online in a series of seven-week modules, can be completed in one year.

According to DWU director of athletics Jon Hart, “DWU’s new Athletic and Activities Administration program is ideal for individuals seeking to advance their knowledge and career in the athletic industry.  From managing events at prominent facilities and top entertainment venues to working with high-functioning sports teams, this program will give graduates a diverse set of skills.”

The program is set to begin in August 2021.
