After you’ve written your thesis or dissertation, we can also help you get your research noticed, including by publishing it on our site.

We generally work with students who will be writing a thesis or dissertation (at undergraduate, masters or PhD level) or submitting PhD applications in the next six months, however if you don’t quite fit this criteria we still encourage you to reach out.

We are accepting applications on a rolling basis. We typically reach out to accepted applicants within 1 to 2 weeks of their applications. If you have a deadline that means you need to hear back sooner, please make a note of this in your application.

If you want your research to do as much good as possible – either directly by contributing to solving a pressing problem or by building skills so you can have a bigger impact later – we encourage you to apply for coaching.

Yes – we still encourage you to apply. We recognise that your skills, qualifications and interests may mean that a different direction is a better fit for you, and the list of directions we feature on our site is not intended to be exhaustive.

However, we might not be able to help you as much as we could if you chose a research direction we recommend, as for these directions we have already found mentors, potential supervisors, research agendas and other useful resources to get you started.

We’re a nonprofit aiming to help students begin research careers that address pressing global problems. This means we particularly appreciate feedback about how we have helped you, to help inform our future applications for funding.

Testimonials:

“I highly recommend Dora Farkas as a thesis and career coach. She is passionate and fully committed to supporting her clients to reach the level of success they desire. Through her coaching techniques, Dora helps her clients to first identify the hurdles they are facing and second, outline strategies for systematically overcoming each hurdle.  If you would like finish your thesis or secure a competitive job offer, Dora is highly qualified to give you the support you need to reach your goals.”

N. Jain, Tenure-track professor

“Dora is an excellent coach, with a style that is compassionate as well as no-nonsense. She helped me set concrete goals that were achievable and meaningful, and held me accountable, making the last semester of my graduate school more productive and less stressful. In the short term, I’ve already had one exciting success, winning my university’s prize for best thesis. In the long term, I expect to continue benefiting from our work developing my big picture career strategies.”

Jessamine Price, www.jessamineprice.com

“Dora Farkas has been instrumental in guiding me through the tenuous process of writing my Ed.D. thesis. Her coaching style epitomizes both patience and respect, in a non-judgmental collaborative manner, that allows you create without fear and embrace strategies that work, by providing the positive push to help you attain your goal. Her ability to listen for understanding, helps her in offering an individualized approach to this academic journey with the most salient and constructive feedback. Dora is a consummate professional and compassionate coach that will bring out the very best in your scholarly endeavors and academic aspirations.”

–Colleen Fritze, Northeastern University

Based on my experience with her, I would like to enthusiastically recommend Dora Farkas as a career coach. Navigating the non-academic job market as a PhD graduate has its own specific set of challenges, and it is crucially important to approach it with the right goal-oriented mindset. Dora was first of all a very good listener, who made me feel comfortable at verbalizing the achievements and challenges I was facing at any given time. Her feedback provided valuable perspective on recognizing the importance of my successes, and turning my challenges into opportunities and calls for action. There is also a good focus on providing a structure behind what may initially seem like a disorganized set of ideas and tasks to be completed, and turning them into goals and action plans, which are then reviewed and revised week after week. She has the skills and the experience to support you through critical periods of your professional life, and to help you come out feeling confident and empowered at the other end.

My competitive edge

About Caroline

I enjoyed a successful 20-year career in stockbroking, entirely in IT project management. During preparation for my thesis, for which I achieved distinction, I noticed the significant failure rate plus high stress related to deadline extensions, experienced by peers.

In pursuit of a long-term teaching vocation, I formed a start-up business for academic performance coaching. I offer a unique methodology plus individual mentoring, coaching and support for interested, ambitious students.

I developed THE DALE METHOD from proven management techniques; several tertiary qualifications in psychology and evidenced based coaching theory. Many successful post graduate students have written to me to confirm the effectiveness of my program in helping them to graduate.

master thesis coaching

Implementing TheThesis Coach workshops into our programme was of great value to the Career division of our business school. Our students benefitted from 1:1 sessions that were specific to their context and were able to clear their path of any distractions and re-align their effort to complete their research assignments on time. It’s also an added benefit that Caroline knows about completing tertiary studies while being a full-time professional, a very daunting test in itself. As the workshop coordinator, I was grateful that Caroline was so willing to accommodate our participants’ academic schedules. I 100% recommend a consultation with her to anyone struggling with their academic-work-life balance.

And, to reflect the manifold applications of Positive Psychology—in education, social work, therapy, counseling, and more—we’ve included how the different Positive Psychology MAPPs aim to cover specific subfields.

More strictly speaking, there is a range of disciplines in which PP approaches and tools provide value, such as teaching ( Positive Education ), sports ( Positive Coaching ), and more.

It is possible to apply online for most of the Positive Psychology study options we have encountered; on this site, we also have a list of Positive Psychology courses that are being updated all the time.

What’s right for you will depend on your level of interest, prior experience, and available time to commit, but the Masters of Applied Positive Psychology is one option that is growing in popularity.

Master’s of Applied Positive Psychology

As with most other Master’s programs, universities offering a MAPP will often accept applicants who have either relevant professional experience or a Bachelor’s degree. Some will require that this undergraduate degree is from a related field, while others don’t have this prerequisite.

Is a Degree or Work Experience Essential?

If you would prefer not to apply on the basis of your Bachelor’s degree or work experience, you may want to try out a less demanding postgraduate pathway first. Of course, that isn’t to say the content will be vastly different, but there are postgraduate study options which aren’t as time-intensive as a Master’s.

Several of the MAPP opportunities listed here are offered by institutions that also run postgraduate diplomas or certificates; Angela Ruskin University and New Buckinghamshire University are two examples. The credits earned from successfully completing one of these qualifications may well be transferrable over to a MAPP if you wish to continue on later down the line.

As opposed to a Masters of Positive Psychology, a Masters of Applied Psychology (MAPP) program is designed to impart more of the practical skills, tools, and knowledge that can be applied straight away. An MSc in Positive Psychology, on the other hand, will often be more theory-focused; it will often be structured so that students learn about the key thinking that has shaped—and continues to shape—the field.

Both, of course, consider evidence, interventions, and theories of key PP topics: wellbeing , mindfulness , happiness , strengths , flourishing, and more. A MAPP, however, is more about applying theoretical and research-based insights in your professional practice. As an example, the University of Pennsylvania has the longest running, and one of the most famous, MAPP programs worldwide.

Upenn positive psychology center

The University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) is home to the world’s very first MAPP program and it has no defined course prerequisites. Martin Seligman , one of the field’s founding fathers, helped to establish this course and sits on the faculty team.

The Applied focus of this degree means that course covers the tools and techniques for Positive Psychology interventions , potentially for a whole range of interdisciplinary applications.

The eight modules are:

New applicants can join during the Fall semester, which starts in September and runs for five weeks. The course boasts a hybrid structure, which means that one week of on-site learning each month is followed by distance learning modules until the next month’s on-site.

After completing the core modules, students complete a capstone project, an opportunity to apply the knowledge learned in their research or professional settings.

Find out more about UPenn’s MAPP at the official website .

Study Options in the UK and Europe

If you are based in the UK and looking for a MAPP opportunity near you, here are some great options from accredited institutions. These include the University of East London’s MAPPCP, Angela Ruskin University, and Buckinghamshire New University.

This course also goes by the acronym MAPPCP—Master of Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology. The UEL is the first institution in the world to offer this unique combination of specializations, having combined elements from two of its other Master’s programs.

In this respect, the course offers an original approach which synthesizes theory and research for applied, modern training on wellbeing.

There are 8 core modules covering both research-based aspects and practical coaching elements:

Three are coaching modules, two are research methods-based, and a further three are focused on Positive Psychology. Students will learn not only about key topics such as motivation, goal-setting, and cognition but also about how these overlap with one another and with the coaching aspects taught.

Access more details on the Masters program here .

Anglia Ruskin’s MAPP is for applicants who want to use positive psychology in a wide range of fields. That includes training, civil service, life coaching, industrial/organizational settings, education, healthcare, NGO, or social work fields.

Counselors and therapists interested in applying the relevant theory or approaches in their practices can also pursue this Masters, which is assessed entirely by completing coursework. Like the UEL MSc just covered, the Anglia Ruskin MAPP takes place partly through on-site, face-to-face classes and partly online.

All three tracks teach an:

The elective modules, offered in the UK Cambridge Campus, are:

The Paris options include:

For more information visit the official  website .

The Buckinghamshire New University (Bucks) MAPP looks at topics such as wellbeing, strength, happiness, and purpose. Theory, techniques, and practices are taught in this two-year course, which culminates in a dissertation.

As well as this, the course covers research methods and the history and evolution of Positive Psychology as a field. It is designed to provide students with the practical and thinking skills required in careers such as Positive Education, training, coaching, and similar.

Modules include:

There is a dissertation for students to complete at the end of this; students not wanting to undertake the Masters can also consider the University’s Postgraduate Diploma or Certificate in Positive Psychology.

Here is the official site for this program.

Jaume Universitat

Endorsed by the Spanish Society of Positive Psychology (SEPP), blends theory and practical applications to explore the field and its science in-depth.

This MAPPA features a mentoring program so that students receive guidance through their studies and final project, and professional development is emphasized through both mentorship and academic training. There are also opportunities for students to pursue an internship and undertake a creativity and entrepreneurship seminar.

The modules include:

Study Options in Australia

Australia, in particular, has seen a large growth in public attention on Positive Psychology. Fields such as Positive Education, Positive Psychotherapy have grown considerably, alongside the now much broader applications of Positive Psychology Interventions in myriad fields (Vella-Broderick, 2011).

The most well-known MAPP in Australia is run by the University of Melbourne, and Associate Professor Vella-Broderick is one of the Centre for Positive Psychology members behind its development.

university of melbourne mapp program positive psychology program

Melbourne University’s Applied Positive Psychology Masters explores the concepts and theories of the field, as well as various key frameworks for wellbeing, positive interventions, and ethics involved.

There is a strong emphasis on the use of Positive Psychology practices in leadership.

Strengths-based skills, for example, are taught as an important part of students’ professional development.

Run by the Melbourne Graduate School’s Centre for Positive Psychology, the team behind the course include Professor Lea Waters, Associate Professors Dianne Vella-Brodrick and Lindsay Oades, and Dr. Peggy Kern.

It’s designed for those who wish to apply positive change and leadership approaches in health, law, business, education, psychology, and economics, and takes place over either one or two years.

The three core for this MAPP include:

During the second year (part-time) or second semester (full-time), students undertake a capstone MAPP project to complete their degree.

Visit the Melbourne University website for more information about this Masters course.

Institute for Applied Positive Psychology

However, it does provide a selection of Master Classes, Intensive Applied Positive Psychology courses, and retreats. That is, the IAPP is a Positive Psychology training provider.

The IAPP is based in Australia’s Norfolk Island and was established in 2014 to integrate academic theory with hands-on practical applications of Positive Psychology. IAPP courses are thus focused on the ‘how’ rather than the ‘what’ or ‘why’ of the field and their courses are suited, on the whole, for all kinds of practitioners.

This includes professionals wishing to learn how to apply Positive Psychology approaches and tools in teaching, healthcare, organizational settings, and in communities more broadly.

The IAPP also aims to develop a network of like-minded professionals driven by action toward personal wellbeing and development. You can learn more about the IAPP here .

Study Options in the US

If you are keen to study in the States, there are other Masters programs in Positive Psychology besides the MAPP.

life university positive psychology program

This private, Atlanta-based University offers a Master of Science in Positive Psychology (MSPP), with two separate tracks that students can pursue.

Students’ final assessments will vary depending on the track that they’ve chosen.

Learn more  about whether the Life University MSPP might suit you.

Other Study Options

Students in the African continent who wish to study an on-campus Masters can consider The North-West University’s MAPP program.

North West University

The learnings will equip graduates with Positive Psychology expertise to apply in fields such as social work, charity, education, business, health, and public service, amongst others. It is a good foundation for those looking to pursue a Ph.D. in the field.

This program involves several sessions at the University’s Potchefstroom Campus during the first year of the Master’s. After this, students undertake assignments; in the second year, they do a mini-dissertation.

Modules featured in this MAPP are:

A host of distant learning options are now available for all kinds of subjects in general. This includes Positive Psychology, and distance learning is opening up the field to students on a worldwide scale. Online Master’s programs offer professionals the flexibility to cover the course material at a time that works best for the individual, as they don’t require physical on-site attendance at lectures and similar.

A Few Notes on Distance Learning

One of the key advantages of a Distance Learning Masters is that there are no geographical limits on attendance.

Course content in distance learning courses is generally a combination of online lectures and interactive tutorials, delivered through the University’s Learning Management System (LMS). Students can usually ask questions and receive feedback through emails with tutors, and lectures themselves tend to be made available for download to maximize the convenience of e-learning.

Assessments are often submitted online as Word Documents or similar, using platforms such as TurnItIn.

Distance learning, in general, is often more economical than attending on-campus classes, however, they offer limited—if any—opportunities for face-to-face interaction.

Here is one of the better-known online MAPPs available.

cq university

While Central Queensland University is based in Australia, the CQU Master of Applied Positive Psychology is an online course. Students will consider the goals and applications of PP tools in different fields, with the course content integrating aspects from coaching, health psychology, counseling, community development, social innovation, and more.

The overall aim is to equip (post)graduates with tools and skills for increasing wellbeing in others, both at a community and individual level. The applications of PP interventions and tools are considered at a broader, societal level, too, as this MAPP takes a holistic approach.

Ten core units make up this MAPP:

Find the official information for this program here at this page .

A good description of Positive Psychology comes from Seligman himself, and he describes it as:

“The scientific study of what makes life most worth living.”

To that end, the applications of Positive Psychology are extensive, whether you’re a dedicated practitioner or using the principles in another line of work. Having a Master of Applied Psychology can increase your employability in fields where human growth, development, wellbeing, and flourishing are important. This is especially true if your MAPP is specialized in a specific area.

Common examples of such fields, or the fastest-growing fields where Positive Psychology plays a role, include:

Social Work

A quick glance at any of the Positive Psychology conference symposia will reveal a huge uptick in the use of PP approaches. Examples can be seen in voluntary or charity-based sectors, where resilience techniques and frameworks are applied in community or social wellbeing initiatives (e.g. Van Breda, 2018).

Counseling, of course, often involves applying Positive Psychology tools to help individuals and groups facing adversity, or in crisis management.

Positive Education

Positive Education combines traditional education with the study of Positive Psychology concepts, such as wellbeing and happiness .

Curricula are now expanding beyond what are sometimes called ‘hard skills’, or core subjects such as Maths. More and more schools are encompassing PP-related aspects both into classroom management and teaching practice.

As well as this, the concept of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is fast becoming part of curricula, with emotional intelligence at the fore of the movement. With Columbia University researchers finding a remarkably high ROI for investments on SEL at schools, demand for Positive Psychology skills can likely be expected to rise (Brotto, 2018).

On the sports coaching side of things, Positive Coaching involves using science-based PP techniques and approaches to coach and develop athletes (Pidgeon, 2019). For most coaches, a MAPP can thus be a means of enhancing their existing practices, while expanding their professional toolkits.

Off the playing field, Positive Psychology can play a huge role in coaching individuals, teams, and employees in organizations. Seligman has written on the subject of coaching more broadly, saying:

“One need not be a licensed psychologist, or even a psychologist, to practice positive psychology or to practice coaching.”

Nonetheless, there are now various MAPP pathways that can lead to accreditation, and help aspiring coaches to practice independently with a license. Some are included above, and we will update this page as more MAPP programs are introduced.

Indiana Wesleyan University I’m in this program right now and very pleased. My professors have been wonderful – very supportive environment. You will work but it’s not impossible and you’ll learn through use, as each class is tied to the others leading you to the capstone. Very well designed. It’s 100% online and the apps are easy. (and I’m not getting paid to say any of this!)

Hi, I am very interested in applying for the MAPP CP program at UEL and was wondering if any of the students here have actually graduated from the program recently and can comment on the admin issues still being an issue 7 years later? Separately, what are your thoughts on the program and post graduation opportunities/recognition, how has your experience been so far?

Please be so kind to respond as I am considering to do this on top of a very demanding day job so time and funds are limited. Thank you!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the career options for an online master's in coaching degree.

The most common career option for a professional with a graduate degree in coaching is that of a coach. This can be in a variety of different sports and at all levels of that sport, including professional teams.

Because coaching can be a competitive industry in terms of employment, many professionals may be interested to learn that there are other options that are available to them. Keep in mind that many of these options may require additional schooling, certification, and in some cases, licensure. They include:

Another career option is to head into doctoral studies. While this is uncommon, many professionals mover straight into doctoral studies right after finishing their degree, enabling them to move towards a terminal degree in the field.

Additionally, many coaching graduates move into freelance work, which can include sports broadcasting, writing, and consulting. The possibilities are endless and only requires a professional's imagination to find a career that fits their needs.

How Much Can You Earn in this Field?

Professionals in the coaching field can make as little as $20,000 to $6 million a year. This drastic range reflects coaches at various levels of the field, current salaries, region, and work experience. It also accounts for head coaches in professional sports leagues, which is often the dream of those who enter the field.

Most professionals, however, can stand to make between $70,000 to $85,000 when coaching a major sport. This can be coaching at a college or university or a smaller professional sports team. These positions are quite competitive but also lucrative as salaries go up with the amount of games and championships a coach and their team wins during the season.

What are the Various Disciplines of Coaching?

Coaching is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on medicine, sports, psychology, sociology, kinesiology, and physical education. The combination of the fields provides all professionals with a firm understanding of performance psychology and athletic performance, two key aspects of coaching that can make all the difference in a game. Professionals will find that most programs will focus on all of these disciplines in one form or another.

An important note to add is that the disciplines that affect coaching depends on the level at which a coach is working in. High school coaches focus both on sports and education because they are often responsible for physical education courses at their school. Those that work at the professional level, or even the university level, work with biomechanics and performance psychology to ensure their athletes are in top shape. There are more examples, but it's crucial to encourage students to take a hard look at curriculum plans prior to entering a program; the dream school may not provide the education they require.

Is a Teaching License Necessary for an Online Master's in Coaching?

Yes, many coaching graduate degrees do require licensure. These are often degrees with a specialization in coaching that fall under the umbrella of graduate education programs. There are some degrees that do not require licensure; these often fall under sports science, kinesiology, and sports management.

Coaching professionals who wish to teach as well as coach must have a valid teaching license in their state of residence prior to applying for most of the programs on this ranking. This is because they combine educational concepts with coaching skills; many also require practicums that must take place on a school campus, something that is not possible without such a license.

For professionals who wish to work in other areas of the field, teaching licensure is not necessary. Practicums will also be required for these programs, but often will take place in community or healthcare settings. These vary from school to school, so interested students should consult with that school's graduate admissions office.

What Kind of Jobs Can a Professional Expect From an Online Coaching Program?

Jobs vary quite a lot in graduate coaching programs. This is because coaching can be done in different settings, including in schools and in the professional sports world. The placements also represent whatever concentrations that a school might have, enabling students to take on placements that make sense for their career path.

For instance, a professional who wishes to coach at a high school will take a work placement in that setting, working with teen athletes and sports managers. Professionals who wish to work in community and nonprofit recreational programs will be paired with organizations that deliver physical education and coaching to people of all ages. Even professionals wishing to coach at the professional level will be paired with adequate placements, enabling every student to experience their career prior to graduation.

Is Accreditation of an Online Program Necessary for Employment Purposes?

It depends on a student's chosen career goal. Many coaching professionals want to coach in schools, at universities, or for professional teams while others may want to design and implement recreation programs for communities. It's even possible to use this degree to move onto postgraduate education. All of these goals have different needs for accreditation.

Regional accreditation is always necessary for any type of degree that a person earns. Unaccredited degrees are not as welcome as accredited degrees, especially when it comes to regional distinction because so many online programs have proven themselves worthy. Accreditation also leads to licensure, which for many coaches who work in schools, may be a requirement.

Special accreditation, such as that which is conferred by the National Association of Sports and Physical Education, can be difficult to find for online programs, but not impossible. In fact, several schools on this list have such an accreditation or are currently in the application process to receive accreditation. This type of accreditation is critical for professionals who wish to coach at the high school or postsecondary levels.

Other professionals, such as those who work in big league sports, will find that their accreditation requirements actually take place after completing a graduate degree. This means that a specially accredited online program is not necessary.

Master Thesis Ghostwriter

The cost of a master’s thesis varies from provider to provider. We guarantee you the best possible result at a fair price!

It is hardly possible to specify a general price for the preparation of a master’s thesis. Writing a master’s thesis is a highly individual matter and the price varies depending on the workload and the respective topic. In addition, of course, the academic training of the ghostwriter that is working on your master’s thesis also plays a role in the make-up of the price.

Why do the costs for a master’s thesis vary depending on the provider?

The prices of the various providers of services in the field of academic ghostwriting are sometimes significantly different. In recent years, there has been a development in some countries that is cause for concern: Because good academic ghostwriting is not cheap, some providers attract customers with extremely low flat rates. However, they usually do not keep the promise of producing high-quality, academically sound work for little money. As a result, students and other clients who commission an academic work receive inferior degree or seminar work, which of course is given a correspondingly lower rating by the lecturers at the respective faculties.

Even if a correspondingly favourable bargain price can be quite tempting, you should consider such an offer with caution. Some agencies work with authors who have not yet completed their studies and therefore work for a lower fee. When selecting the agency to which you would like to entrust your master’s thesis, pay attention not only to the price list, but also to the quality of the offer. Student writers generally cannot produce work at a higher quality as ghostwriters with a college degree can.

Services provided by a ghostwriting agency

Amongst other things, a professional ghostwriting agency distinguishes itself by the fact that it provides a free initial consultation and then creates a free and non-binding offer for your master’s thesis. Since every master’s thesis places highly individual demands on the ghostwriter, we calculate each order individually. Our prices are based on a variety of aspects that affect the preparation of your master’s thesis. A theoretical work is usually cheaper than an empirical master’s thesis, which requires a higher workload. The length of the work as well as the time frame available for creation also influence the price.

Another important point to keep in mind when hiring our ghostwriter is the state of your preparation at the time of handover. The more material you can provide to your author, the less time our experts will have to spend on narrowing down the question, structure, collection of empirical data or literature research. Not only does the extra time required drive up the price, our authors will then also find it much easier to adjust to your needs if they have more material to work with. The more specific the guidelines you give to our ghostwriters, the more detailed and comprehensive the final master’s thesis will usually be in meeting your expectations and the requirements of your supervisor at the college or university.

The material that our ghostwriters have at their disposal is coupled with the amount of research required for the master’s thesis. From many customers, we receive extensive material or one draft of the master’s thesis that has already been partially completed. Of course, such preliminary work requires an intensive revision, but this is much less time-consuming than if no material is available at all. If our ghostwriters have to work everything out for themselves, on the one hand the working time is extended and on the other, the price goes up. This is the case, for example, if you are still unsure which topic you want to work on. In both cases, we will gladly assist you with your master’s thesis. Talk to us and we’ll extend you an individual offer!

An academically grounded work written by experienced authors

Unlike many other agencies, we do not offer academic work at bargain prices. On the one hand, your master’s thesis goes through many different stages with us: Once the text has been written, it is checked again for correctness of the content and its logical structure, before being subjected to intensive editing by professional and experienced editors. Prior to delivery, your master’s thesis will be proofread several times with regard to formal, structural and content errors. In addition, our authors adhere very closely to the formal requirements of your faculty and ensure a consistent design of all directories, footnotes and annexes that are attached to the master’s thesis. Finally, our authors will conduct a plagiarism check so that you can submit a work that is both plagiarism-free and unique.

On the other hand, we work exclusively with authors who have a long academic career and at least one academic degree. Many of our ghostwriters not only have a bachelor’s or master’s, but also a doctorate. Some of our experts work in higher education and regularly publish their own research. Authors with long experience in academic ghostwriting require higher fees, but also provide higher quality work that meets both the academic and formal requirements of an academic thesis.

Why time plays an important role

Many students come to us only when they realise in the middle working on the master’s thesis that they are not up to work alone and need professional help for the last push to the end. In such a case, the short time available naturally means an increased fee, as our authors are subjected to high time pressure: Within a short time, they not only have to familiarise themselves with the topic, but also deliver a high-quality academic work. Due to the shortened working time, it may happen that the resulting work, even from an experienced author, is slightly less in terms of quality. We recommend that you think carefully about whether you need help writing your master’s thesis and contact us as soon as possible. In this way you not only get a higher quality work, but also save money and nerves.

Of course, we also handle short-term inquiries. Our authors are experienced enough to achieve academically, sound results in a short time and translate them professionally and efficiently into a linguistically high-quality text. However, the longer the timeframe that we have to work through your request, the higher the quality will generally be, and the cheaper the price for your master’s thesis will be. Naturally, this depends on the amount of material you provide us and the time you want to invest in collaboration with our ghostwriters.

Payment options and financing

Of course, you mustn’t worry about immediately paying for your master’s thesis in full. Depending on the timeframe and scope of the order, we are happy to offer you the option of instalment payments. On fixed dates, you will receive partial deliveries from our authors , allowing you to observe the progress of the work and propose changes or additions. The instalment payments are based on these partial deliveries and vary in their amount, depending on the scope of the master’s thesis and the number of appointments. We will be more than happy to advise you by phone or email about the various ways to finance your master’s thesis.

Graduate degrees in coaching.

In a world where sports are broadcast internationally, and children begin to compete at a young age, coaches play an important role. Furthermore, learning the best practices for encouraging fitness, building teamwork skills, and utilizing strategy on the playing field prepares individuals to be better coaches. A graduate degree in coaching can embed these skills for coaches at all levels of experience. Many programs have a variety of focuses, including customization options and networking opportunities for coaches of individuals in all stages of education. Others encourage the physical education side of the field. Regardless, the job market for coaches across levels and sports is supposed to grow 13 percent from 2016 to 2026, which is faster than the average for all occupations, according to the Bureau for Labor Statistics.
