The sport management program is an interdisciplinary program leading to a bachelor of science in sport studies. All students complete a common sport management core and then select a track (in business or communication) based upon their professional goals. Two practicum field experiences are required, and internships with sport organizations are strongly encouraged and recommended.
Former students have completed internships with such organizations as the LPGA, the United States Olympic Committee, NASCAR, Cincinnati Bengals, and the Indiana Pacers, as well as several minor league sport franchises.
In addition to college and professional sport organizations, employment opportunities are available in health clubs, sport facilities, and with various other sport organizations.
- All students complete the Sport Management Core and either the Business Track OR the Communication Track
- All courses in the Sport Management Core and selected track must be completed with a minimum grade of “C.”
