Did you know that “sports” is a $200 billion dollar industry in the U.S. alone? Those dollars spell opportunity for students with a love of sports and ability to organize and manage. In the exciting Sport Management program, which combines a solid business foundation with experiential learning, you’ll be able to start your career running.
Career opportunities include, but are not limited to:
Municipal Parks and Recreational Sport Leadership
Sport Facility Management
Sport Event Management
Community/Voluntary Agency Sport Programming
Upon successful completion of the Sport Management curriculum with a grade point average of 2.00 (C) or higher, the student is awarded an Associate in Applied Science Degree. Students who know they wish to pursue a four-year degree and want to meet general education requirements of transfer institutions should pursue the A.A. Degree. This will necessitate a slightly different curriculum.
