asynchronous online only program

This method was selected to allow for students across the region, and globally, to complete the degree at their own pace, in as little as 1-year. Workers within the sports industry work various hours throughout the day, so scheduling courses where students would be able to attend would limit many industry workers from being able to enroll in courses.
