IAL Program Structure
IAL students take part in an intensive one-year experience that blends in-person and distance learning with hands-on internships and professional development. Our unique structure allows for ultimate flexibility for those looking to get a foot in the door, or professionals who have an existing position within athletics and education. Learn more about how the year is structured below.
NOTE: COVID-19 has impacted all facets of higher education, including the IAL program. We have remained flexible and solutions-oriented during this crisis, continually looking for ways to best serve our students and adapt our operations. For the 2020-2021 academic year, this has meant a shift in program structure, offering our summer courses virtually, and increasing professional development and networking activity. While we cannot say with certainty what adjustments might need to be made for the next cohort, we are confident in our ability to continue to offer a nation-leading graduate program and high-quality experience for all students.
