Sport Administration

The specialization in Sport Administration addresses the planning, organizational, leadership, and evaluative aspects of management within the sport enterprises by holding the institution of sport to a high level of inquiry and serious scientific scrutiny. Students work with their advisors to complete a series of courses in the sport administration program and in a variety of other disciplines related to their academic interests and goals, and this includes: business administration, marketing, mass communication, higher education administration, interpersonal communication, and psychosocial foundations of sport. All students in sport administration complete either a thesis or a project. The program is planned over two continuous years of study and adheres to the curriculum standards established by the National Association for Sport and Physical Education/North American Society for Sport Management.

Students work closely with their advisor in developing a focus of study, selecting courses, and deciding whether to complete a thesis or master's project.
