My experience

At Wingate, the chemistry professors do more than simply teach students; they mentor you and invest their time and energy to make your undergraduate experience personal and invaluable. My relationships with my professors allowed me to succeed academically and discover my passion for research. Wingate’s chemistry faculty aid in student learning by always answering questions and encouraging students to think critically. The chemistry research class gives all chemistry students the opportunity to conduct a research project with the guidance of a faculty member. This gives students a glimpse into what being a chemist is really like. In addition to research, my professors supported my educational growth by helping me obtain outside internships and applying to graduate school. Without the chemistry department’s personal attention to each student, I would not be where I am today.”

Sport Management Degree Program

ABOUT 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.
