The expanding field of sport management has created job opportunities in sport venues, fitness clubs, retail businesses and in event management. This program is for students wanting to work in administration, intramurals, athletics, sport marketing or sport information.
A physical education major with a sport management minor prepares students for those positions and others. Sport management students take accounting, management and marketing courses, including psychology, computer science, nutrition or small business concepts, along with their physical education classes. Most importantly, each student has the opportunity to gain professional experience during their senior year in an intensive internship.
