The Sport Management major and minor are interdisciplinary programs designed to allow students the opportunity to obtain theoretical knowledge in the fields of business, economics, journalism and media studies, philosophy, and health and human performance and apply it to the study of sport management. Courses encourage critical analysis of the cultural and social significance of sport, the need for ethical and moral decision-making and the role of sport as business.
Students who complete a major or minor in Sport Management would be prepared for graduate studies in sport management or athletic administration. They will also be well positioned to pursue careers in the areas of sport business and the management of sport.
The Outstanding Sport Management Award is granted annually to recognize an exceptional graduating Sport Management senior.
