Stephen F. Austin Offers Grad Program for Would-Be ADs

Stephen F. Austin State University has developed a graduate program to prepare students to become athletic directors.

According to a press release posted in The Light and Champion newspaper, the new academic concentration will begin this fall as part of Stephen F. Austin’s James I. Perkins College of Education in Nacogdoches, Texas.

The 30-hour, online program is designed to allow students to stay employed while developing the skills needed to supervise student-athletes and coaches. Graduates will earn an educational leadership master’s degree.

“The Master of Education in educational leadership program at SFA has a rich history of preparing effective and capable school leaders who influence the educational setting and focus on instruction for student success, but the addition of a program specifically for future athletic directors is a new one,” said Dr. Barbara Qualls, director of SFA’s educational leadership program, in the press release.
