Sport Management

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.

Why major in Sport Management?

I have loved my time in the sport and recreation department here at Wingate. I personally feel well prepared to go out and find a job in the sport and recreation industry. I think that another thing that helped me in my career at Wingate is the relationships I have with my professors.Titus Hayes, Class of 2024

My professor really cared about me as a student, pushed me to think outside the box, made the classes engaging and hands-on, and showed me that there was a degree that I can have that encompassed my interest of wanting to work in a wellness/fitness setting. The SRMT Professors in my opinion take their time with each student to learn about them and their interests.Alexis Levi, Class of 2024

Like most class sizes at Wingate, all of my SRMT were small, therefore allowing me the opportunity to build relationships with my professors and instructors, which helped to expand my learning. To this day, I consider many of my former professors my mentors and friends.Erin Brooks, Class of 2019
