In this article (click the link above) the University of North Carolina Greensboro presents some reasons to consider graduate school. With the online options available for completing a graduate degree, such a pursuit is now a possibility for many individuals that previously would have ruled out earning an advanced degree due to career/family/life constraints.
Below are links to some information regarding various online programs for a graduate degree in the exercise science field, including a link to the California University of Pennsylvania (CUP) program that I completed and the Edith Cowan University (Perth, Australia) program to which I was accepted prior to starting my graduate program at CUP. At the time that I was accepted to the Edith Cowan University program, the U.S. government had just discontinued Federal Financial Aid for foreign distance learning programs. If you have the financial means or are willing to take on privately held loans, the Edith Cowan University program may be a great option, particularly if you are interested in the strength and conditioning field.
