Sport Management Degree
Bachelor of Science
Sport Management Degree Overview
Sports and athletics are an important part of our society. Sport Managers are required to plan, organize, promote and direct sporting activities. Sport management majors are prepared to fill these roles.
Students in the sport management degree program investigate the social, ethical, economic, legal and political factors impacting the management and administration of sport organizations. The application of management principles to the sport industry distinguishes this program from the others offered in the department. Sport management majors learn about finance, law, organization management, personnel and marketing.
Students have the opportunity to be involved in the intercollegiate athletic department, the intramural program and the professional sport arena. An internship, which offers students the opportunity to practice what has been learned in their courses and to further their learning, is a requirement for graduation
