Sport Management Major — B.S.
This program is in transition, moving to the School of Business effective Fall 2017.
The sport management major prepares students for a wide range of management positions in the sport industry and/or for graduate study in sport management, business management, or law. A core curriculum in sport management and media provides an understanding and appreciation of all aspects of sport — its historical and cultural development, as well as its sociological, economic, and political dimensions. A core curriculum in management, with specialty courses in sport management, provides knowledge and skill in the areas of organization, finance, law, personnel, and marketing. The application of management principles to the sport enterprise distinguishes this degree program. Students are encouraged to select a minor in their area of interest or related to their career goals. Graduates of this program are well prepared to assume positions in college, professional, and amateur sports offices, event management, marketing firms, sport agencies, international sports offices, and related fields.
