Sport Management Degree
Bachelor of Science (B.S.)
Sports and athletics are an important part of our society. Sport managers are required to plan, organize, promote and direct sporting activities. Our sports management degree is designed for students who want to gain the skills and preparation needed to fill these roles.
Students in the sport management major on our Minnesota campus will earn a Bachelor of Science degree and gain a solid understanding of the social, ethical, economic, legal and political factors that impact the management and administration of sport organizations. Sport management majors will 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.
Sport Management Major (B.S.) Courses
At least 30% of this degree, or a minimum of 38 credits, must be at the upper (300-400) level. If you choose to take lower-level Christian Studies core classes (CHM 201 or CHM 211 ), then you must take enough upper-level general electives to meet this requirement.
1 Select humanities electives from COM, ENG, ESL, FAR, HIS, HUM, LAN, MUS, PHI, or PRC.
2 Select social science electives from ANT, CSJ, ECO, ESL, GEO, HIS, POL, PSY, or SOC.
* Some courses from the Christian Studies Core can be used to fulfill requirements in the General Education Core. In addition, some courses required by the major can be used to fulfill requirements in the Christian Studies or General Education Cores. By doing that the number of electives needed would increase so that the minimum of 125 credits is reached.
Students apply for departmental acceptance during their sophomore year spring semester or their junior year fall semester. A minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA and completion of half of the Christian Service requirements are required for departmental admission in the Sport Management major.
