This is an interdisciplinary program housed in the Division of Education. The program is administered by the sport management coordinator. Core courses in sport studies and athletics and in management build a foundation of knowledge and skills related to managing, planning, organizing, budgeting, leading, marketing, and evaluating within the context of an organization or department whose primary product or service is related to sport or physical activity. Carefully selected elective courses prepare students for graduate study (e.g., in business, law, or sport management) or a career in the sport or fitness industry (e.g., athletic director, sport agent, sport marketing, sport media, and managing professional and amateur sport organizations, parks and recreation areas, or sport governing bodies).
