Scott Dulin; '11; Methuen, MA; M.Ed. Athletics Administration
"Being firmly entrenched in the career of college athletics, I was hoping to be able to pick up bits and pieces to help progress as a professional. After one class, I soon found out how beneficial this program was for me and my profession and I was gaining more knowledge than first expected. I have been an administrator of college athletics for over 11 years and have coached college athletics for over 14 years. This program helped me re-think how I run an Athletics Department and acted as a self-evaluation and as a departmental evaluation. Being a part of a cohort with other like-minded individuals was extremely fruitful as I was able to get other ideas that I could implement into this athletics program. Since the start of this academic program, I have seen an improvement in the Fisher College Athletics program and I am better at my profession because of it. For those looking to get into this career, the course work covers all aspects of the job. I can honestly say that all of the courses were pertinent and consistent with my daily duties as a Director of Athletics. The availability to do the course work online made it possible for me to attend to my current job. I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking into getting into the athletics world or for those already involved in it."
