(ST. LOUIS – September 1, 2021) – High-performing athletes deserve the most qualified, well-rounded athletic performance coaches. With a science-based, evidence-informed curriculum, Logan University will launch a Master of Science in Strength & Conditioning to its award-winning lineup of degree programs, beginning summer 2022.
“As an established chiropractic and health sciences university paving the way for collaborative, holistic, integrated care, we’re proud to offer innovative, in-demand programs such as the new Master of Science in Strength and Conditioning,” said Logan University President Clay McDonald, DC (’82), MBA, JD.
Logan’s program is industry-driven and developed and led by experienced, active leaders in athletic performance. Upon graduation from this one-year, online program, students will be prepared to sit for the NSCA Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) exam—the gold standard in athletic performance.

With a projected job growth of 11% between 2018 and 2028, Logan-educated strength & conditioning coaches may find careers in high school, collegiate, semi-professional and professional athletics; training facilities and private gyms; military and first responders; physical therapy and rehabilitation clinics; education; research and more.
