Sport Sciences programs of study

Sport Management

While a sport sciences degree focuses on the science of sport, a sport management degree focuses on the business of sport. Sport management majors enjoy a robust course of study in the classroom. They also put theory into practice with a three-credit-hour internship in the summer between their junior and senior years. This full-time internship working with industry professionals prepares you to transition from school to the workplace.
